Vice president to hunt on Election Day
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney will spend Election Day hunting in South Dakota, his press secretary said Sunday.

Cheney, who voted early in Wyoming, will work Monday morning at the White House, and then depart Washington for South Dakota, said Lea Anne McBride, his press secretary.

It will be Cheney's first hunting trip since February, when he accidentally shot a hunting companion while attempting to fire at a covey of quail on a private ranch in Texas.

Tuesday's trip, to a private hunting lodge near Pierre, is an annual outing, said McBride. Four years ago, Cheney spent Election Day at the same lodge, McBride said.
