Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, 77, provided support for those urging in person voting in this year’s elections by showing up with wife Jill Biden Monday morning at the New Castle County elections office in Wilmington, Delaware to cast an early vote in the September 15 state primary.
Reporters asked Biden about his confidence in the November election and about early voting, but did not press him on not voting by mail for the primary to set an example. Democrats have been waging a campaign calling for nationwide mail-in voting for the presidential election which President Trump warns is a set-up for massive vote fraud to steal the election.

Last month, Biden promoted mail-in voting while taking a shot at President Trump for voting absentee in the Florida primary, “Voting by mail is safe and secure. And don’t take my word for it: Take it from the President, who just requested his mail-in ballot for the Florida primary on Tuesday.”
Voting by mail is safe and secure. And don't take my word for it:
Take it from the President, who just requested his mail-in ballot for the Florida primary on Tuesday.
