WASHINGTON– President Obama and First Lady Michelle will be voting in the Feb. 2 Illinois primary, the White House said Monday night. The First Couple have requested absentee ballots and “they will be arriving at the White House shortly,” the White House said.

While the Obamas obviously are living in the White House, their voting residence remains in Chicago. Their ballots would be issued by the Chicago Board of Elections.
