Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane have cast their votes in the Vermont primary, stopping at a polling place in Burlington on Tuesday morning.
Sanders was seen driving himself to the polls in a Subaru Forester, with a Bernie 2020 bumper sticker on its rear window.
“I want to make sure we get at least two votes in Vermont!” Sanders joked as he entered the community center with Dr Sanders to cast their ballots.
“It’s very nice to be back, I can tell you that,” Sanders said to a poll worker. The New York Times reported that the Vermont Senator received a warm welcome at check-in. “Nice seeing you both,” one woman said. “Hey, I love you,” said another.
Sanders told reporters that he first learned how to build a coalition of voters in Vermont, noting “that’s what we did in Burlington, and that’s what we’re going to do nationally.”
The Vermont Senator told reporters he had slept well, but briefly locked Dr Sanders out of the car, before departing the community center.
Vermont is one of fourteen states to vote on Super Tuesday. Sanders is widely tipped to win his home state by a significant double digit margin.
