Palin will return to Alaska on Election Day.

STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Sarah Palin will return to her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska to vote on Election Day, a campaign adviser tells CNN.

Palin plans to leave the campaign trail next Monday night to fly to Anchorage, and will then drive to Wasilla to cast her vote before returning to the lower 48 to spend election night with John McCain in Phoenix.

“Home is where Gov. Palin launched her career in public service and it's fitting that she return to Alaska to vote,” the adviser said. “She's looking forward to traveling to Wasilla to cast her ballot.”

As of ten days ago, Palin was unsure where she would be on November 4.

“We don't know what the plan will be yet on there,” she told reporters on her campaign plane earlier this month. “If I'm not there physically we will be applying for that absentee ballot and we'll do the early voting there. Yeah. And we'll do it fairly.”

  5. Vets for McCain

    McCain is an honorable man, deserving to be President of this great country. Country First. That's something young people have a hard time understanding. Except for those fighting so honorably in our military right now.

    If we have to get out of Iraq, and then go into Iran and Afganistan – then McCain is the man to do this. This is no time for training wheels.
