Washington: US President Barack Obama will cast his ballot for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Chicago this month, he told Democratic supporters in a fundraising solicitation on Monday.
“Later this month, I’m going to head back to Chicago and cast an early vote for the next president,” CNN quoted an email by Obama.
The President is scheduled to travel to his hometown on Friday to raise money for Democrats.
“There are millions of people across the country who are still making up their minds. And those are the voters who will decide who succeeds me,” he wrote on the sidelines of a fundraising solicitation.
He added that those who want to elect Clinton, need to hustle as hard as they can to connect with the undecided voters before their ballots are cast.
To promote the concept of early voting, Obama voted for the incumbent Democratic governor, Pat Quinn, a few weeks before Election Day in 2014.
