Gov. Pence, other candidates cast their ballots for Election Day

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — While voters across the country hit the polls for Election Day, it was no different for the candidates on the ballot themselves.

Before going out to vote, Gov. Mike Pence went on a morning bike ride with his wife. He then made his way over to St. Thomas Aquinas to vote. The vice presidential candidate had arrived in his home state early Tuesday morning. He’ll spend the rest of his day in New York, where he’ll attend election festivities with his running mate, Donald Trump.

Speaking of Trump, the Republican presidential candidate arrived at a Manhattan polling place to cast his ballot. The crowd met him with a mixture of cheers and jeers, according to the New York Times. Trump shook hands with voters and gave high-fives to others inside Public School 59.

On the Democratic ticket, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton arrived in Chappaqua, N.Y., to vote with her husband, former President Clinton. She said it was a “humbling feeling” to vote at Douglas G. Graffin Elementary School, where people crowded around to get a glimpse of her and her husband.

Her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, arrived at his polling place in Richmond, Va., before the polls even opened. Kaine said the decision was now in the hands of voters. He will join Clinton Tuesday night to watch election results.

In Indiana’s race for governor, Democrat John Gregg and his family voted in Sandborn, Ind. Gregg was scheduled to make several stops around the state, including Terre Haute, Fishers and Indianapolis. He and running mate Christina Hale will then join supporters for an election night watch party at the Indiana Convention Center.

Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, the Republican nominee, voted this morning on his polling location on West 86th Street in Indianapolis. Holcomb was scheduled to make stops at polling locations Hendricks, Marion and Hamilton counties in a final Election Day push. He and running mate Suzanne Crouch will join supporters for an election night watch party at the J.W. Marriott in Indianapolis.
