Marlon Duran and his mom decided to vote early because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rio Grande Valley has been hit hard; more than 3,000 people have died.
Duran and his mom walk out their front door to a car that’s parked outside.
“It was nice of your friend to lend you her car,” he said to his mom.
Their car wasn’t working earlier in the week, but they were still determined to get to the polls.
A few minutes later they arrive at a polling station in McAllen. They grab their masks and quickly make their way inside to cast their ballots.
