CHICAGO (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama cast his ballot early in his hometown of Chicago on Thursday.
The president said, "All across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting."
Obama says it was really convenient, but joked, "I can't tell you who I voted for."
Obama signed forms and showed his driver's license at a south side Chicago voting site, and then voted at a blue voting machine.
It's the first time a sitting presidential nominee has voted early.
About 35 percent of voters nationwide are expected to vote before Election Day.
