It has all quietened down at the Auckland Decision 2012 hub, but it may well be the calm of before the storm.
The general hush is interrupted by occasional cheers as election results for the battle ground states roll in.
With US$3 billion spent on the election campaign between the two presidential candidates, this is the most expensive election ever.
The US Consul General in Auckland, James Donegan, admits he is waiting with bated breath for the outcome.
“There is always a bit of pageant, if you like, with politics and elections,” he says.
But what is more important is how well Obama and Romney have addressed issues affecting the American public.
When asked about the voter turnout, Donegan says he has had to rely on anecdotal accounts from friends and family in the United States.
“From what I gather it is good turn out.”
