Donald Trump has voted this Saturday morning in Florida, where it is registered. Just before 10:00 a.m. (local time, 16:00 in mainland Spain), the President of the United States was taken to a library in the county of Palm Beach, near his mansion in Mar-a-Lago, where he has spent the night, and has cast his vote. To date, more than 56 million people in advance, a record figure.
The president wore a mask visiting the urn, but has taken it off to speak to the press later. “It was a very safe vote,” Trump said. “I voted for a guy named Trump,” the president joked. His spokesperson, Kayleigh McEnany, explained afterwards that the room was evacuated so that the president could exercise his right, who three weeks ago tested positive for coronavirus.
Trump has a marathon of rallies this Saturday, three in total in North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin. When you return to the White House tonight, you will have traveled 4,000 kilometers in a single day. Until Election Day, November 3, he will maintain this pace, in stark contrast to the Democrat Joe Biden, which has a much smaller schedule.
The restrictions imposed by the pandemic have led many citizens to vote early. According to the US Election Project’s count, Florida is, with Texas and California, one of the states in which the most citizens have voted in advance. Of the 56 million who have voted, 38 million have done so by mail, as many states have already opened polls. The rest has been done by mail.
