What you need to know about tonight's Trump and Biden town halls

October 15, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are participating in competing town halls tonight. The events take place the same day both presidential candidates were originally scheduled to debate.

President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are participating in competing town halls tonight.

While the lionshare of the mail votes in each of those states is likely to be submitted long before Election Day, some voters may very well wait it out.

A recent Fox News poll in Pennsylvania found, for example, that 10% of likely voters said they'd be voting by mail and submitting their ballot on Election Day. If the total ends up being that high and the election is close, it will be hard to know who has won in any of those three (Michigan, North Carolina or Pennsylvania) states without seeing the final votes.

CNN analyst Harry Enten laid out how he plans to watch President Trump and Joe Biden's dueling town halls tonight:

The election is only 19 days away, and tonight's competing town halls will be an opportunity for President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to answer questions from voters.

The CNN Poll of Polls tracks the national average in the race for president between Trump and Biden.

Greenville, North Carolina — Both Republicans and Democrats who lined up to vote here on Thursday said they decided to come out on the first day of early voting in North Carolina because they harbored serious misgivings about the safety of voting by mail.

The comments come as President Trump attempts to raise questions about the election because of the adoption of mail-in voting due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Felton, a 38-year old Black woman who was voting for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, said she had never voted by mail and wanted “to go with what I knew. ” 

Biden will be taking questions from voters during an ABC town hall tonight.

With 19 days until Election Day, more than 17 million ballots have already been cast in 44 states and the District of Columbia, according to survey of voting data from CNN, Edison Research and Catalist.

Almost 10 million of those votes come from the 16 states that CNN rates the most competitive in the presidential election.

Today is the first day of early voting in the critical state of North Carolina, but mail-in ballots started going out more than a month ago.

This data does not predict the outcome of any race, as polling around the country shows Democrats prefer to vote early or by mail, and Republicans prefer to vote in-person on Election Day.
