CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - President Obama will spend Election Day in his hometown of Chicago.
The president spent the final hours of the campaign making a mad dash through battleground states rallying voters to hit the polls Tuesday.

President Obama voted by absentee ballot.

The President will continue an Election Day tradition.

Mr. Obama will play a game of basketball with his staff before ending his day at McCormick Place in Chicago where he hopes for a repeat of that 2008 November night.
