(Newser) – President Obama cast an early ballot in the midterm elections during a visit to Chicago yesterday, and a bystander couldn't resist hamming it up. "Mr. President, don't touch my girlfriend," joked Mike Jones as Obama was voting. The president happened to be casting his ballot right next to Jones' fiancee, Aia Cooper. "I wasn't really planning on it," answered the president, who then started a little lighthearted banter with Cooper, reports CNN. "Now you'll be going back home and talking to your friends about this," Obama told her. "'I can't believe Mike, he is such a fool.'"

Obama ended it by giving her a little kiss as he left, adding, "Now he's really jealous." Also of note is a poll worker who made sure to stick to protocol as Obama showed up to vote at the Dr. Martin Luther King Community Service Center. Are you Barack Obama? the worker asked, as quoted by DNA Info. "That's me," replied the president.
