He announced the news on his Facebook page on Saturday, October 24, saying it is a great honour.

“It was a very secure vote. Much more secure than when you send in a ballot, I can tell you that,” he said.

By voting early, the 74-year-old Republican leader became one of the nearly 55 million Americans who cast early ballots amid the COVID-19 pandemic that made in-person voting difficult.

According to several opinion polls, Biden is likely to beat Trump in the elections as he is ahead in battleground states.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that former US president Barack Obama has sent a passionate message to young voters and urged them to "create a new normal" by electing Joe Biden as president.

In a video message, Obama said one of the most inspiring things he had witnessed this year was the vigour showed by young people who are thirsting for fundamental change.

He described Democratic nominee Biden as a revolutionist who is keen at effecting change and setting up a system that is going to treat everybody equally.
