Live Updates: Texas Supreme Court denies GOP bid to reject drive-thru ballots

FAN Editor

In a blow to the Republican Party, the Texas Supreme Court again on Sunday declined to reject drive-thru voting in Harris County, the state’s most populous county. Rejecting the drive-thru ballots would have tossed out more than 120,000 votes cast using that method. Early voting ended Friday in Texas, and the number of people who voted early surpassed the number of total voters in 2016.

More than 92 million Americans nationwide have already voted.

President Trump spent Sunday blitzing swing states, holding rallies in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. At a campaign rally in Dubuque, Iowa, Mr. Trump tried to push the idea that the results should be announced on Election Night. 

“We should know the result of the election on November 3,” Mr. Trump said. “The evening of November 3. That’s the way it’s been and that’s the way it should be. What’s going on in this country? What’s going on?”

Joe Biden, meanwhile, focused on Pennsylvania, holding rallies in Philadelphia. He will be barnstorming the state on Monday, along with his wife, Jill Biden, and running mate Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff. The Biden campaign announced he will travel to Ohio on Monday as well.
