Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris, of California, had an awkward moment during a virtual campaign in North Carolina on Thursday when she and a staff member burst out laughing amid a strong push to vote.
“So my last point is this: This election ends in 19 days,” Harris said, and a smile spread across her face. “Yes, that’s what I said. Did Kamala say it ends in 19 days? Yes, I said, he said it ends in 19 days.” At that moment, Harris seemed to be struggling with laughter.

“Because you see North Carolina, early voting begins today, October 15,” she continued, as a male voice outside the camera was heard laughing. “So we want you to start voting. On October 15, we want you to start voting and vote earlier.”
The personal early voting in North Carolina takes place from October 15 to October 31. Voting by mail begins when ballots begin to go to the polls on September 4th. North Carolina was the first state to send ballots to voters.
