Obama Headed to Chicago to Vote Early

"Vote early" is the theme for this election, though hopefully not along with "vote often"


President Barack Obama will briefly visit Chicago today to cast his ballot early—the first sitting president to do so.

Democrats have been aggressively trying to gain an advantage over Republicans in states that allow early voting. When Obama announced that he would be voting early, he said on Twitter, "If your state has early voting, join me," and directed followers to a link with more information about early voting.
