Overnight, some disgruntled voters took to the streets in some U.S. cities, including Seattle.
About 100 protesters demonstrated early Wednesday on Capitol Hill after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States.
Social media videos showed people filling the street in the block of Pike Street, Broadway, and 10th Avenue. They set fires, blocked traffic and threw bottles.
A Periscope user, who said he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention, posted a video showing police lining an intersection near 10th Avenue and Pike.
A waste bin was set on fire nearly an hour later at Pine Street and Harvard Avenue.
Police closed 10th and Pike Street to traffic during the demonstration.
The protesters have since dispersed and no arrests have been reported.
Protests were also reported at UCLA, where a Trump piñata was set on fire and in San Francisco, where there were reports of protesters breaking windows and setting fires downtown. In Portland, about 300 protesters blocked MAX trains and traffic on I-5 Tuesday night, according to KOIN TV.
