Vice President Pence casts ballot in Indianapolis


Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS -- Vice President Mike Pence has voted in the general election in Indianapolis.

Pence and his wife, Karen, cast ballots about 8:15 a.m. Friday, shortly after the polls opened in the Indianapolis City-County Building. They voted in a drop-off ballot box outside the county clerk’s office.

“It’s a great honor and great to be back home again,” Pence said, giving a thumbs-up sign toward cameras.

Pence did not answer questions shouted at him from the news media.

Indianapolis City-County Councilman Zach Adamson, a Democrat, was outside the building on behalf of Joe Biden's campaign.

“I’m glad he’s coming to vote. We Democrats love it when people come to vote and we’d like more people to have access to the ballot. A lot of people are here because they are dissatisfied with what they are seeing, especially with the national response on COVID,” Adamson said.
