President Obama returned to his Chicago neighborhood to vote early on Thursday. Obama became the first U.S. president to cast an early vote in person—and also possibly the first president to be carded at the polls, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
"I very much appreciate everybody here," the President said at the early voting site. “It’s good to be home back in the neighborhood."
But the most famous man in the world still had to prove who he was. An early voting official looked at the president and smiled: "I need an I.D."
That was met with laughter, including from Obama, who then joked about his license photo.
Illinois requires identification only when voting early. The First Lady also cast an early vote earlier this month.
