Romney casts ballot, campaigns as people vote

BELMONT, Mass. (AP) — Mitt Romney has cast his ballot in the presidential election.

After all the flights, all the speeches, the debates, hand-shakes, nods, gestures and smiles, it was time for him to vote and then hold curtain-closing campaign rallies in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Then, he had to contemplate the fall of night and the counting of votes, and hope for the best.

His wife, Ann, was at his side Tuesday morning when the pair cast their ballots near their Belmont, Mass. home a little before 9 a.m. EST. The Republican presidential candidate will return to Boston Tuesday night for an Election Day reception at the Boston Convention Center.

Asked who he voted for, Romney replied, “I think you know.”
