Many came out to vote during the early morning rush hour on this Election Day. For one Delawarean it was an extra special day.

Joe Biden came home to Delaware to be a part of the voting crowd and cast his last vote as the vice president. It was a nice surprise for voters who ran into Biden at A.I. DuPont High School in Greenville. Biden was a part of the early morning rush to vote among neighbors.

“What amazes me all the time when I vote, all the years, coming home and being home, is all the volunteers, all the people in there manning the polls,” Biden said.

As Biden prepares to make room for the next leaders of the country, he shared his future plans.

“All the things that I care about I’m going to be engaged in,” Biden said. “I’m still going to be engaged in American foreign policy. I’m still going to be engaged in violence against women and dealing with incoming equity. Now what platform I’ll do that from, I’m not sure yet but the bad news is I’m not going away.” 

Immediately after Biden voted, he made his way to Newark and then over the state lines to Philadelphia to hit the campaign trail during the last few hours.
