The president of the United States and Republican candidate for the US Presidential Election 2020, Donald Trump, cast his early vote at a polling place in West Palm Beach, in the key state of Florida, ahead of the US elections 2020 on November 3.
“I voted for a guy named Trump,” he said smiling to the press before leaving one of the libraries qualified to vote in the state to which changed his residence from his native New York.
“It is an honor to vote. To do so in this area that I know so well. We are going to do three great acts today“, affirmed President Donald Trump.
“We are doing great in Florida and in all places,” he added.
The voting center Trump went to is located within walking distance of his private Mar-a-Lago club, which since 2019 became the official residence of Trump.
Frustrated by his lack of political leadership in his hometown, Trump moved his residence to Florida from New York to campaign during the US Presidential Election 2020.
Trump also hoped that the change of address would give him a boost in the electoral battle in that critical state since his path to another term in the White House is difficult without a victory in Florida.
Nearly 55 million Americans have already cast their early vote, according to a count released Friday by the US Elections Project monitoring group, in the US election 2020 conditioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
Compared to the total of 47 million people who voted four years ago in the period immediately preceding election day, this increased preliminary attendance also reflects the enormous interest that this electoral process arouses among the population.
This year 239.2 million people are eligible to vote and a rise in final votes is expected, amid the polarization of the campaign and the interest aroused by the dispute between Democrat Joe Biden and Trump.
