Election 2020: Dancing, haircuts at early voting centers in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- As Election Day inches closer, long lines have become a norm at satellite election offices around Philadelphia, but that doesn't mean some aren't breaking up the seriousness with some fun.

Dancing and even a haircut might not come to mind when you think elections, but it was happening this weekend in the city. Some moments are even going viral like a performance by the Resistance Revival Chorus out of New York City.

The choir performed at the satellite election office at Tilden Middle School Saturday as part of the "Joy to the Polls" campaign.

Harris was there on Saturday and was still dancing on Sunday.
"I had so much fun I could hardly unwind when I got home. I was still wound up," she said.
