The biggest day of Hillary Clinton’s career starts with civic duty. The US presidential candidate, the first woman to be a major contender for the highest office in the country, cast her ballot today at around 8am.

She and husband Bill Clinton held hands before entering the polling station at Douglas Grafflin Elementary School, in Chappaqua, New York. They waded through throngs of voters, ballots in hand, toward a cluster of American-flag-themed booths.

Clinton filled out her ballot first.
