CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Hillary supporters in Clinton's home town of Chappaqua were hoping to be celebrating Tuesday night by mid evening, but as the night went on only one thing was clear - any possible celebrations weren't going to be until much later, as the race for president remained too close to call.

Large crowds in several locations around Chappaqua - including the Chappaqua Tavern - started to thin out as it became clear that this was going to be a long and difficult night.

"We figured we'd come watch the election results, and root for Hillary," Mark Gollin, of Chappaqua, who was at the tavern with his family, told Daily Voice. "It's like a horse race... and he's (ahead) now, so it's a little scary."

As Bedford estate owner Donald Trump held a commanding lead as the evening went on, Gollin was asked what part of a Trump presidency concerned him most.

"The unknown," Gollin said. " It's really scary, and I'm a Republican. Who knows what this guy brings to the table? It's really hard to know. He really hasn't stated what his morals are, what his ideas are, what direction he's going to head. ... I just don't know if he has the competency to run the country, to be honest."

"I thought this was going to be the most energetic, vibrant place to watch the election results," Mary Greene, who traveled from South Salem, said. "I think this is going to be a historic election, and I'm not voting for Hillary because she's a woman, I'm voting for Hillary because I think she's qualified, and works extremely hard. It's an emotional night, and a historic night."
