Sen. Joe Biden voted Tuesday morning with his wife and mother.
WILMINGTON, Delaware (CNN) – With his wife, daughter and 91-year-old mother in tow, Joe Biden headed to the polls to vote Tuesday shortly before 9 a.m., about the same time Barack Obama cast his own ballot in Chicago.
The foursome walked into a local school minutes away from the Bidens’ home to cast their ballots at the spacious polling station void of the long lines seen elsewhere Tuesday.
Biden’s mother, Jean Finnegan Biden, showed an election official her ID. After her granddaughter Ashley asked “Ready, girlfriend?”, walked into one of the three booths.
Watch: Biden votes with his wife and mother
The senator and Mrs. Biden took the other two booths, and the Democratic vice presidential nominee emerged seconds later with a wide smile, flashing a thumbs-up for the cameras.
Mrs. Biden came over and gave her husband a big hug. As his mother emerged from behind the blue curtain he told her, to loud laughs, “Don’t tell them who you voted for.”
Moments earlier, Biden told an election official, “Mom said ‘It's the most important election of your life, but not because of you, Joe.’"
Asked by a reporter how he’s feeling, Biden responded, “Feel good, feel good.”
The Delaware senator was on the ballot twice Tuesday, as he runs for his seventh term in the U.S. Senate against Republican challenger Christine O’Donnell. With a significant lead in the polls, however, his re-election bid is essentially a foregone conclusion.
Election Day is shaping up as a family affair in the Biden household: 36 relatives will travel with the senator to Chicago Tuesday, ahead of the Democratic ticket’s evening rally in the city’ Grant Park . On his way, Biden will stop at a polling station in Richmond, Virginia. The Democratic ticket heads into Election Day with a small lead in that traditionally-Republican state.
Liz the younger voter... Where Joe Biden voted to there are no lines... my office is across the street from that location. Never any lines there in any election. Old money has its advantages.
I've been a long time supporter of Sen. Biden. I've seen what his policies have done for the great State of Delaware. I couldn't be prouder of a vice-presidential candidate.
wooohooooooo, a landslide is coming america! god bless us the smart folks for voting for barry, and joe the 65 yr old kid from scranton.
This is one of those days that won't be forgotten soon.
The caption on the picture makes it seem like he married his mother. And he's holding her hand... redo it, CNN!!
WITHA TEAM LIKE OBAMA/BIDEN,, WE CANT LOSE,,,YES WE CAN YES WE CAN!!!!!!
I hope he voted for McCain!!
Smart comment by Mama Biden!
Go Obama/Biden – Change is just around the corner.
Has the governor of Delaware already tapped someone to be Joe's replacement in the Senate when he officially resigns to become Vice President (and President of the Senate)
here is the biginning of the landslide which john king and co have refused to disclose to the republicrats.
Its time for change. I have not gained nothing like did when clinton was in office. I really think as a whole the USA is ready for someone who cares about us who work hard early day GO OBAMA! He was sent for change to come!
macain for life
So what happens if Joe Biden wins the vice-presidency AND his senate seat?
you will be a good vp.
as for mcbush, his biggest mistake was palin around with sarah.
what was he thinking. he is going senile.
I watched the news coverage of his voting. I was touched by the attention and constant respect he has for hi mother.
GOBAMA!!! I cannot wait to see the day that Texas becomes a BLUE state!! Until then – Democrats get out there and turn this state BLUE!
He probabaly wrote Hillary Clinton in. This guy is so dumb.
I have read some of these comments that come before mine and I wonder how these people have gotten this far on their vocabulary. My hat is off to both who run for this very prestigous office. I will say, that I too, am glad that most americans can put aside the color of skin for this election, as we all should in the future elections to come. I want to divulge, that my vote is with Mr. Obama. For Mr. McCain, it is not your time. We as a country need to stop these last 8 years from continuing, and let a new era start.
i hope you win because you're the best!
Canada 4 Obama/Biden08....God bless the USA
"33.8 MILLION WAS GIVEN TO THERE CAMPAIN FROM FOREIGN COUNTRIES , FOR ACORN TO DIG UP DEAD VOTERS .DIG ACORN DIG "
bob, where the hell do you get your information?
the republicans started doing that in the bush election by using names of people in jails across the country.
check your sources bob i fear you are severely misinformed.
To 47yo male for McCain:
Yet this used car salesman was deemed capable to be the chairman of both the judiciary committee and the foreign relations committee. Go figure.
I am waiting for CNN to post on its front page the news that Sarah Palin was cleared of any wrong doing in the Troopergate investigation. You liberals trashed her and made sure that Troopergate was on the front page of every liberal website when it looked like she may have done something wrong, and now that it has been proven she did NOTHING wrong, you cannot find the story anywhere. It has become such a sad state of affairs. Liberals are working overtime to ruin this country.
Joe I will be pround to call you my Vice President.
JOE THE VICE PRESIDENT!!!
