resident Obama on Thursday became the first sitting president to cast his vote early, part of a push by his campaign to encourage early voting. Obama voted at a station in his hometown of Chicago, after having his identification checked by a poll worker. (Obama told him to just ignore the fact that he has no gray hair in his picture.) "I can't tell you who I voted for," Obama told reporters after he successfully submitted his electronic ballot. First Lady Michelle Obama also voted today, sending in an absentee ballot by mail.
