Ryan, wife Janna and his three children arrived at the Janesville library to vote in a presidential race that entered its final day on Tuesday.
Ryan did not wait in line and made his way to the front of the line. He greeted poll workers with hugs and asked one man, "Coach," if he was in touch with mutual friends.
Ryan was then heading to campaign stops in Ohio and Virginia before an election night rally with Mitt Romney in Boston.
