    People stand in line to vote during the U.S. presidential election in Janesville, Wisconsin November 6, 2012.

Election day is here and the question many people are asking on social media sites, including Twitter is: "Who is winning the election?" With President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney frantically attempting to woo the final undecided voters in recent days, it now all comes down to the polls today.

On Monday both Romney and Obama conducted a whirlwind race of final day campaigning in swing state Ohio as well as other key battleground states that are predicted to decide who enters the White House after Election Day.

Early voting results have been compiled by AP for some of the key swing states including Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, and North Carolina.

According to the Associated Press approximately 30 million people have already voted across 34 states and the District of Columbia. Early voting has been conducted by mail or in person.

No early votes will be officially counted until Election Day on Tuesday, however, some swing states are releasing information on which party affiliation early voters have held.

Here are the figures that have been released by the Associated Press on Monday:

In addition to the presidential election there are also 33 Senate seats on the ballot on Tuesday. It is predicted by numerous analysts that Democrats will hold their majority.

However, the situation was reversed in the House, where Democrats have been less vocal about their chances of gaining the 25 seats needed to gain control of the House.

Following months of fierce campaigning there are now just hours to go in the election, and national opinion polls in the presidential race have suggested the popular vote is a virtual tie.
