Jeri Anderson, a 65-year-old evangelist, geared up in a plastic face shield Sunday to knock on doors in Prior Lake, part of a Trump campaign team using a smartphone app to find the last of the election's undecided voters, or just nudge a few supporters who might need a reminder to vote.

In north Minneapolis, DFL lawmakers and volunteers handed out free handwarmers, snacks and "vote" masks as a DJ played at a "Souls to the Polls" event a block away from an early voting site. Local, state and national Democratic leaders took the mic to urge residents in the DFL stronghold to vote.

With time running out, the campaigns for President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden scrambled over the weekend to scrounge up the last remaining votes in a 2020 battleground state that belies its modern history of favoring Democrats in presidential elections.
