US President Donald Trump cast an early vote in the US Presidential Election at Florida on October 24, marking the first time an incumbent President has voted, in-person, in Florida, according to reports.
Biden hasn't voted yet and it likely to do so in person in DE on election day, November 3.
Trump who previously complained that mail-in voting led to fraud hailed in-person voting as a very "secure" even though he did not elaborate. "I'm old fashioned, I guess", he said.
United States of America President Donald Trump gestures at an event.
He thus became one of almost 55 million Americans to cast early ballots in a year when the coronavirus has made in-person voting problematic. "Much more secure than when you send in a ballot, I can tell you that", he said.
"It was a very secure vote".
Early voting begins in NY state
The Tennessee Secretary of State's Office said the numbers are up from the last presidential election in 2016. Trump narrowly won Florida in the 2016 election, beating Hillary Clinton by just over 100,000 votes.
There has been record early voting in the United States election with 53 million people already having voted, largely because of fears over Covid-19.
New research from Tufts University indicates that early voting and absentee ballots among young voters ages 18 and 29 have spiked in Florida.
The large number of early voters is a sign of the intense interest in this year's election, as well as concerns about avoiding crowded polling places on Election Day and reducing the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, which has killed more than 224,000 Americans.
Mr Trump has accused Mr Biden of overstating the health crisis to scare Americans into voting for him.
Trump shrugged off polls which continue to show his Democratic rival Biden leading the race. The president held two campaign rallies in the crucial swing state on Friday, and is traveling on Saturday to campaign in North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin.
In Pennsylvania, polls show Mr Biden narrowly leading. Trump handily won Luzerne County in 2016 over Democrat Hillary Clinton and barely lost to Clinton in Bucks County.
