Joe Biden cast his vote in Greenville, Delaware Tuesday morning shortly after the polls opened, waiting in line for about 13 minutes and saying hello to fellow voters. 

Biden, who has been on the ballot in Delaware eight times, sparked speculation about a possible 2016 run when asked by reporters if he thought it was the last time he’d vote for himself.

“No, I don’t think so," Biden replied, the Associated Press reported.

A poll worker reportedly apologized to the vice president for the wait, but he didn't mind, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“I hope everyone exercises their right to vote,” Biden said. “Stand in line as long as you have to.”

He was joined at the Alexis I. duPont High School's polling station by his wife Jill, son Beau Biden, who serves as the state's attorney general, Beau’s wife Hallie, and their 8-year-old daughter, Natalie. 

The 69-year-old politician has not yet ruled out a presidential run in 2016, even telling an attendee of his campaign event in Sarasota, Florida, “You can vote for me in 2016," according to ABC News.

Biden has run twice, in 1988 and 2008, and would enter the 2016 race with 44 years of political experience. 

The VP will head to Chicago to meet up with Obama tonight for what the two hope will be a celebration, ABC News reported.
