More than 100 million people had already cast their votes in the 2020 race for the White House before Election Day on Tuesday, giving credence to the notion that this year’s election between incumbent Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is the most important in history.

In comparison, four years ago 47 million people had taken advantage of early voting opportunities between Trump and Hillary Clinton, according to early voter turnout records, USA Today reported.

“The American people will have their voices heard, this will be a peaceful transition, and we will move forward,” Biden said Tuesday at an event.

Early estimates project that 150 and 160 million people will ultimately cast ballots in the election, which would be the largest turnout of eligible voters by percentage since 1908, USA Today reported.
