US President Joe Biden cast his ballot just over a week before the congressional elections. Biden made use of the early voting option in the state of Delaware on Saturday. He was accompanied by his 18-year-old granddaughter, Natalie, who was allowed to vote for the first time. The election is about a fundamental decision between two very different visions for the country, Biden emphasized after voting.
Biden's Democratic Party currently has narrow control of both houses of parliament. Previous polls give the Republicans, who are still dominated by ex-President Donald Trump and his like-minded people, a good chance of gaining a majority in the House of Representatives in the election. In the Senate, several potentially decisive races are considered extremely close.
