DURHAM, N.C. — Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha will be advocating for early voting in Durham, WTVD reports.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Durham on Sunday.

The State Board of Elections reported North Carolina has already topped one-million votes in the general election.

Around 470,000 people cast their ballots in the first two days that voting early in-person was an option.

Over 570,000 ballots were cast by mail-in absentee.

Washington and Asomugha will participate in a voter mobilization event around 1 p.m. and kickoff with Biden/Harris volunteers around 2 p.m.

They will then be involved with a Sister Circle meets Shop Talks event in Durham around 2:15 p.m.

Washington was the star ABC’s “Scandal” from 2012 to 2018 and appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” in 2012.
