President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have cast their ballots in the 2018 midterm elections.
 
A White House spokesperson said Friday that both Trumps voted by absentee ballot in New York “a few weeks ago.” That means they will not have to travel to the state, where they are registered to vote, to cast a ballot in person.
 
In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is seeking a third term in office and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) is also running for reelection. Both are expected to defeat their Republican challengers.{mosads}
 
Vice President Pence and second lady Karen Pence also cast absentee ballots in their home state of Indiana, a spokesperson said.
 
The president and vice president cast their ballots as the GOP works to retain control of both the House and Senate in the first elections since they took office.
 
Trump has been criss-crossing the country to campaign for Republican candidates in key Senate and gubernatorial races. He is scheduled to travel to West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio and Missouri in the final four days before Election Day.
 
Pence plans to join the president at a rally Friday evening in Indianapolis amid his own campaign blitz.
