The day has finally arrived for American’s to head to the polls to elect their next president. The candidates were out early to cast their votes and pose for photographs that will be seen around the world.

Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama brought their young daughters Sasha and Malia to witness what may well be an historic event. Their up close and personal civics lesson took place at Beulah Shoesmith Elementary School in Chicago. John McCain and his wife Cindy cast their votes in Phoenix.

Joe Biden, his mother and his wife Jill were photographed at a private school in Delaware, a half mile from their home. Sarah Palin and her husband Todd voted in Wasilla, Alaska. We’ve also got photos of Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton casting their votes in Chappaqua, New York in what clearly had to have been a bittersweet moment.

Check them all out in the photo gallery below.
