The longest lines were found in Virginia, where voters previously needed a reason to cast an early ballot. In the state's Fairfax County, where reports showed lines stretching for hours, election workers scrambled to open an additional voting room at the county government centre.

Ed O'Keefe of CBS News tweeted that "dozens" of socially-distanced voters cast ballots in the first 45 minutes of early voting in Duluth, Minnesota.

South Dakota and Wyoming also saw their first day of early voting on Friday. Ballots can be cast through November 3.
