Vice President Joe Biden traveled to his home state of Delaware to vote for himself today. After he emerged from the voting booth, reporters asked the vice president if he thought it would be his final time casting a ballot for himself.

“No, I don’t think so,” Mr. Biden said with a grin.

Win or lose, this will be be Mr. Biden’s last chance to vote for himself as President Barack Obama’s running mate. His comments could indicate he’s planning a White House bid of his own four years from now or a potential return to the Senate. On the other hand, they could also be another one of his infamous campaign trail quips.

Like many voters, Mr. Biden experienced a wait when he showed up to vote at Alexis I. DuPont high school in Wilmington. However, his delay was just about 11 minutes. Once he got into the voting booth, according to the White House press pool report,  Mr. Biden took “no longer than 20 seconds” to cast his ballot.

President Obama will not be voting today. He voted in Chicago last month, becoming the first president to vote early.
