Ever urgent as the clock runs down, Barack Obama's and Mitt Romney's teams have been pressing voters to get to the polls while thousands who are already there have waited in long lines for their final chance to avoid the Election Day crush.
In Columbus, Ohio, more than 1,000 murmuring voters were winding through a maze in a former department store on the city's west side.

Those are just two of the many scenes being played out across the country during the final acts of the 2012 presidential campaign.
