Former President Obama, Michelle Obama in Chicago to vote
CHICAGO (AP) — Former President Barack Obama is close to campaigning ahead of the Nov. 8 election, but he came home with the former first lady Monday to vote.
The two came to Chicago to vote in the city where Michelle Obama was born and raised and where the former President began his political career, first working as a community organizer before becoming a Senator, then a U.S. Senator and eventually was elected President.
They arrived at the Chicago Board of Elections Supersite in downtown Chicago just after 12:30 p.m. They chatted with poll workers, shook hands, voted, and then left.
The former president said he missed the old punch-style ballots, joking that they were a way to “pump out some aggression, some frustrations.”
The former president is expected to be in Atlanta on October 28 to campaign on behalf of Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for governor of Georgia against Republican governor Brian Kemp.
After that, he plans to run in Michigan and Wisconsin on behalf of the Democrats running for governor, senator and on the ballot.
