If the 2020 presidential campaign is a marathon, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are starting the 26th mile.

As both campaigns are stumping, millions of voters have already taken part in the political process.

“We’re going to win,” President Trump said. “I wouldn’t have said that three weeks ago.”

“I promise you, I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as those who did,” said Joe Biden.

More than 28 million Americans have cast their ballots early.

“Democracy is not a spectator sport,” said Eugene Wallace, a voter from Pennsylvania. “It’s not for bleacher bums. You gotta get involved, so that’s why I’m here and I’m gonna do my democratic duty.”

“You know, if you don’t vote, don’t complain for the next four years,” says Tracy Alston-Bunn from Hanover Township in Pennsylvania. “That’s the way I look at it.”

Over the next 14 days, voters will decide whether to have another term with the Trump administration, or start a new era with a Biden White House.

“With your continued support, every day between now and November 3, we’re going to have a great victory,” said Vice President Mike Pence

“Justice is on the ballot in 2020,” said Sen. Kamala Harris. “Economic justice is on the ballot in 2020. Climate justice is on the ballot in 2020.”

Trump and Biden are scheduled to debate for the second and final time this Thursday, Oct. 22.

The commission on the presidential debates announced microphones will be muted to prevent interruptions.
