Here's a photo of First Lady Michelle Obama holding up her absentee ballot this morning:

"Obama for America announced today that President Obama will vote early in Chicago on October 25th, and that First Lady Michelle Obama cast her Illinois asentee ballot by mail this morning. The President and First Lady are making history by voting early in person and by mail in order to promote the ease, convenience, and importance of voting," according to the Obama campaign.

The Obama campaign is trying to encourage people to vote early. "With many states now offering voters the opportunity to vote early in person or by mail, the President and First Lady have been encouraging supporters to cast their ballots early, noting the added ease and convenience of voting ahead of Election Day."
