Biden Casts Vote, Says 'It's Always a Kick'

Posted:

GREENVILLE, Del. (AP)- Vice President Joe Biden has cast his vote in the 2012 election, saying "it's always a kick."

President Barack Obama's running mate says it was the eighth time he's run for election statewide in Delaware. Asked if he thought it was the last time he'd vote for himself, he told reporters: "No, I don't think so."

Biden arrived with his wife, Jill, at Alexis I. DuPont High School in Greenville, Del., shortly after the polls opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday and waited about 13 minutes.

Several voters offered to let Biden move ahead of them, but he said no. "I've never butted in line in Delaware. The idea of doing it on Election Day - whoa!" Biden said.

Biden shook hands with other voters, hugged several and posed for pictures as he waited. He called voting a great honor and urged Americans to "stand in line as long as you have to" in order to vote.

Also accompanying the vice president were his son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden; Beau Biden's wife, Hallie; and their 8-year-old daughter, Natalie.
