President Obama is taking an ambitious tour through several swing states Thursday – and is even stopping back home in Illinois to vote.

The commander-in-chief will make stops in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Illinois. In his home state, he’ll cast his early in-person ballot, making him the first president ever to use early voting.

Meanwhile, Romney is placing all of his efforts on Ohio Thursday, stumping in Cincinnati, Worthington, and Defiance. The Republican’s running mate, Paul Ryan, will be in Virginia while Romney’s wife, Ann, will make appearances in Florida.

Vice President Joe Biden is heading to South Dakota to attend a prayer service for former Sen. George McGovern, who passed away on Sunday.

With just 12 days until Election Day, new polls are showing Romney and Obama neck and neck.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll found the race essentially tied with 49% for Romney and 48% for Obama. Another survey out Thursday by Gallup showed Romney leading Obama by three points nationwide.
