What we know about the new US election rules
The US election will go on as normal on Monday, but a major shift in voting laws could be on the horizon.
The US House of Representatives passed a bill that would allow people to vote in person from their homes.
On the other hand, the Senate is expected to vote on a bill which would make it illegal for anyone to vote online from a computer anywhere in the world.
The new voting laws are expected to come into force on Sunday, and are expected, with more than a few observers saying the US is in the early stages of a nationwide election shake-up.
President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to change voting laws and has said he will support a ballot initiative to put an end to the voting ban.
A few hours before the new rules were announced, there was an increase in protests in California against the new voting rules.
Some of the protesters wore masks and carried signs reading “Voting is sacred”.
A number of other states, including Nevada, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, have been rocked by violent protests over the past week.
Earlier in the day, thousands of protesters took to the streets of San Francisco, where thousands of people were arrested for peacefully protesting against Trump’s election.
On Saturday, hundreds of people in several cities also gathered to protest against Trump.
