Melania Trump votes in person in Florida
First lady Melania Trump voted in person in Palm Beach County, Fla., on Election Day.
The first lady arrived at the Morton and Barbara Mandel Recreation Center in Palm Beach to vote around 10 a.m. Trump, who has recovered from the novel coronavirus after her diagnosis last month, did not wear a mask when she entered the polling place.
“It’s Election Day, so I wanted to come here to vote today for the election,” Trump replied when asked by a reporter why she didn’t vote early with her husband in Florida last month.
President Trump, who switched his residence from New York to Palm Beach County last year, cast his ballot in person during early voting in Florida on Oct. 24. Polls show Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden running neck and neck in the Sunshine State, a key battleground that Republicans view as crucial to Trump’s reelection.
The first lady spent time on the campaign trail to stump for her husband over the last several days. She delivered her first major speech on the campaign trail this cycle at an event in Pennsylvania one week ago and later appeared alongside the president at a rally in Florida.
Vice President Pence and second lady Karen Pence also cast their absentee ballots in person in their home state of Indiana during early voting on Oct. 23.
