Biden votes in Delaware, campaigns in Virginia

UNDATED (AP) -- Joe Biden hit the polls early this morning in Delaware, where he cast his ballot with his wife, daughter and mother along.

The Democratic vice presidential hopeful then traveled to Virginia for some Election Day campaigning. He visited a polling place in suburban Richmond, shaking hands and hugging voters.

In one exchange, Biden spoke with a 19-year-old who has sickle cell anemia. Poll workers had helped the teen cast his ballot from the back seat of a car because he wasn't well enough to go inside. Biden told the first-time voter, "Thank you, man."

Biden was also invited by a poll worker to come inside the polling place. Biden joked that he'd be tempted to vote a second time.
