President Trump cast his ballot in Florida on Saturday ahead of a jam-packed weekend of campaigning just 10 days ahead of the general election.

The big picture: Trump registered as a Florida voter in 2018, citing his Mar-a-Lago residence. His in-person vote comes amid a massive uptick in mail-in voting due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Trump argues mail-in voting is typically unsafe and ripe for fraud.

  • Trump made two campaign stops in Florida — a vital swing state — on Friday and is heading to North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin to deliver remarks throughout Saturday.

The other side: Former Vice President Joe Biden is homing in on Pennsylvania. Both he and former second lady Jill Biden are hosting a drive-in rally in the state on Saturday.
