U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders voted Tuesday in his hometown of Burlington, Vermont.
Sanders had just came back from a 12-state swing for Hillary Clinton and said he hoped that "we defeat Donald Trump and we defeat him badly."

The independent U.S. senator from Vermont got 86 percent of the vote over Hillary Clinton in the state's Democratic presidential primary in March, before losing the party nomination to her.

He says he thinks this has been a particularly ugly election and he hopes the nation can get beyond this and "start focusing on the very serious issues that face this country."
