Sarah Palin, after casting her vote in Wasilla, Alaska, sounded a hopeful note and said her faith in the American people had been strengthened by her two months on the campaign trail.
"I hope, pray, believe I will be able to wake up as vice president-elect," the Alaska governor said.
Asked by reporters what it was like to vote for herself as vice president, she replied that "it was exciting."
"America is a land of possibility," Palin said. "I'm very, very honored, humbled. I thank God for this opportunity."
She was the only one of the major-party candidates to speak to reporters after voting today.
Late Monday night, Palin was the last of the candidates on the tickets to release medical records.
Her campaign sent out a two-page letter from her doctor since 1997, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, who said Palin's medical visits revolved around her five pregnancies, including the premature birth earlier this year of Trig.
"Governor Palin is in excellent health and has no known health problems that would interfere with her ability to carry out the duties and obligations of Vice President of the United States of America," Baldwin-Johnson wrote.
