Obama, Farrakhan, Ayers Use Same Polling Place

Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama voted alongside former domestic terrorist William Ayers at Shoesmith Elementary School this morning, according to ABC News and other organizations.

Also voting at the same polling station: Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Ayers, a former Weather Underground bomber who worked with Obama during his community organizing days, preceded the Democrat in voting by several minutes. Farrakhan also is expected to show up Tuesday morning to vote at the polling place. All three men claim their residency in the same area of Chicago’s South Side.

Ayers did not answer a question about how he voted from reporters waiting inside for Obama's arrival, according to the Associated Press.
