WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama won’t be posing for any photos in the voting booth on Election Day – he’s casting his ballot early.
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama said Monday they are both voting early, a nod to the campaign’s efforts to encourage supporters to vote absentee by mail or cast their ballot at an early voting location. Mrs. Obama said on Twitter that she dropped her absentee ballot in the mail on Monday, telling her followers, “I couldn’t wait for Election Day!” The first lady then tweeted out a photo of her posing with the envelope holding her absentee ballot.
Minutes later, the president said on Twitter that he was following Mrs. Obama’s example and intended to vote early in person in Illinois on Oct. 25 – three days after the final presidential debate. “If your state has early voting, join me,” Obama said on Twitter, directing followers to a link with more information about early voting.
