Former President George H.W. Bush raised quite a stir on social media when news broke via a Facebook post that he was planning to cast his ballot for Hillary Clinton.

The idea of a Bush voting for a Clinton blew a few minds in the media, but would it happen again when George H.W. Bush cast his vote for president?

According to Jonathan Martin of the New York Times, President Bush and wife Laura simply left the presidential line empty and headed down the ballot instead.

A former president not voting for president? That’s news.

Maybe they tweeted a voting booth selfie that slipped past us?
