Participation of the first voters Texas continued to break records on Friday, as the number of first-time voters exceeded the state’s total number of voters in 2016. More than nine million people have voted in the state since Friday, the last day of early voting.

Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris visited the state to campaign. “Today is the last day of early voting in Texas and you have all done your thing,” he told Fort Worth.

Meanwhile, President Trump and Joe Biden campaigned in the Midwest as they headed to the last weekend before Election Day. Mr. Trump’s rally in Rochester, Minnesota was limited to 250 people due to coronavirus restrictions and lasted only 30 minutes.

Biden, meanwhile, had his busiest day before the general election, rallying in three states and returning to Iowa for the first time since finishing fourth in the Caucasus in February. “Back to the state report,” he said, at the top of his remarks in Des Moines.

Biden will campaign in Michigan on Saturday with former President Obama. The couple will be in Flint and Detroit, as Biden hopes to regain the status won by Mr. Obama in 2008 and 2012, but turned red for Mr. Trump in 2016.
