    As the US heads to the polls in what might be a historical Election Day, a federal judge in Texas has rejected a last-ditched effort by Republicans to throw out 127,000 votes cast at drive-through polling stations in the left-leaning Harris county. Once solidly conservative, polling in the state shows Biden and Trump running neck and neck.
