Obama votes early in Chicago

President Obama on Thursday stopped through his hometown of Chicago to cast his ballot, becoming the first president in history to take advantage of early voting.

"This is the first time a president has ever early voted - it's pretty exciting," he told election officials as his election paperwork was verified. One woman working the voting station got a laugh out of the president when she double-checked his driver's license for identification.

"Ignore the fact that there's no gray hair in that picture," the president joked, adding he was glad he remembered to renew his ID.
