Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, close staffers and singer Jon Bon Jovi appeared frozen like mannequins in an election day advertisement released by her campaign in the early morning hours on Tuesday.

The campaign tweeted the video, with the entreaty "Don't stand still. Vote today." and the hashtag #MannequinChallenge, showing staffers, including close aide Huma Abedin, Clinton and Bon Jovi on a plane, standing silent seemingly mid-movement. Bon Jovi appeared with Clinton at two rallies on Monday.

They break character, laughing and applauding, before putting up the message to go and vote.

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump face voters on Tuesday as millions of Americans turn out on Election Day to pick the next US president and end a bruising campaign that polls said favored Clinton.

In a battle centered largely on the character of the candidates, Clinton, 69, a former secretary of state and first lady, and Republican rival Donald Trump, 70, a New York businessman, made their final, fervent appeals to supporters late on Monday to turn out the vote.

A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and said she was on track to win 303 electoral college votes out of 270 needed, to Trump's 235.
