The US presidential election has just begun and we are now entering the final stages of the campaign.
The latest polling shows that Donald Trump has a strong lead in the Republican race.
But there are a number of issues that have been of great interest to the electorate, including climate change and the future of our nuclear weapons.
The following questions and answers will help you understand the key issues that will be on the political agenda this year.
Key questions and responses about the election: How many people voted in the US election?
There are now about 46.3 million Americans who have voted in this election, which is less than half of the total population.
This means that more than one million people have voted.
How do you know how many people participated?
The official count of the votes is due in May, but in reality, the voting process is often messy and people are often registered multiple times.
The official total is based on a process called tabulation, in which the counting of votes is based solely on the number of paper ballots that are returned.
This process means that some people who are registered as being absent will actually have voted, while others who have been registered as voting for more than once will have only voted once.
Why did the US vote in such a large number?
It is the first time since the mid-19th century that the US has elected a president at the same time as a global economic crisis has hit the economy.
As a result, the US economy has become a battleground for economic issues in the past few years.
Why were the candidates chosen?
Donald Trump, who has been in office since 2012, has been elected as the Republican nominee for the White House, a decision that shocked many voters, including many who were angry at the Democratic Party.
The US economy is now struggling, and there are fears that the world will not recover until after the US leaves the international trading blocs and begins to trade with other nations.
However, Trump has also said that the United States should not be paying the costs of the nuclear arms race, and the United Nations has said that he is opposed to the Paris climate change agreement.
How many seats did the Republicans win in the House of Representatives?
The US House of Representative is the lower chamber of Congress.
It has a very low voter turnout compared to the US Senate, which usually draws between 55 and 60 per cent of the population.
The number of seats is usually decided by proportional representation (PR), which means that the parties in the house vote on a ballot in proportion to their seats.
The Republicans won the House in a landslide, winning an overwhelming majority of seats, which means they control the House.
Why are there two Republican and two Democratic senators?
The current system has been used in Australia for decades, which allows the parties to hold two different seats in the Senate, although the Republicans hold the majority in the upper house.
It is not uncommon for these seats to be split by the party with the largest number of votes.
But the two senators are separate from each other and they are not considered as senators.
Why was the Supreme Court given so many votes?
The court is the only legislative body in the United Kingdom.
The court has the power to make decisions on a wide range of issues and is made up of justices from different political parties.
However there are only eight members in the court and they have been split evenly between parties.
Why is the United Church of Canada opposed to same-sex marriage?
The United Church has supported same-gender marriage since 2004 and has called on its members to vote for same-sexual marriage.
But in November 2016, the UnitedChurch of Canada, the largest Protestant denomination in the country, voted in favour of a motion to allow clergy to officiate same- sex marriages.
Why do people vote on the internet?
In Australia, voting on the web is free and accessible, but online voting is not available in the UK.
In the US, it is more complicated because the voting systems in some states have a strict voting limit, while in other states it is easy to vote with a mobile phone.
What will be the major parties’ policy agenda in the coming years?
The major parties have a range of policies to address climate change, the future security of nuclear weapons, the use of the military in the Middle East, and other issues.
However in the end, there will be a clear preference for one or the other candidate on any issue.
The big parties are expected to support a range a policies, from climate change to nuclear weapons to military spending.
Who is leading in the polls?
One thing that is clear from the last few polls is that Hillary Clinton is running well ahead of Donald Trump in the race for the presidency.
Trump has been the favourite for months and has shown his strength on the issue of climate change.
But his lead has been much smaller than in the early months of the race, when he was ahead of Trump by a wide margin.
In October, Clinton received 49 per cent support from
