President Obama votes early in Chicago


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.
