Hillary votes in Chappaqua

From NBC/NJ's Athena Jones
CHAPPAQUA, NY -- Hillary and Bill Clinton cast their votes near their home in Westchester County, New York this morning. Chelsea, who lives in Manhattan, accompanied them.  

The senator voted first. Afterwards, she said she felt "really good."

"It's a very humbling and overwhelming experience to cast my vote," she said, upon emerging from the booth  "It's a really extraordinary day; it's a great tribute to our country. I hope a lot of people come out and vote today. I hope everybody will take the time and trouble."

Bill cast his vote next. "It's one of the proudest moments of my life," he said, while declining to talk about his wife's chances or say much about how long the race could go.

As they left the Douglas G. Grafflin School here, Sen. Clinton was asked about her prospects today. "I am just very excited about today. I think we should encourage everybody across the country to come out and vote in this unprecedented national primary," she said, before repeating a main theme from her stump speech about how she hopes voters will choose the candidate best able to lead on Day One.
