Shouldn't you be wearing Republican red Mitt Romney and Ann don matching blue outfits as they cast their ballots
17:17 GMT, 6 November 2012
Red is traditionally the colour of their party, but on election day Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and his wife Ann, selected outfits in shades of blue.
Both were photographed early this morning as they cast their ballots at the Beech Street Center in their hometown of Belmont, Massachusetts. Mrs Romney wrapped up in a bold cornflower blue wool coat, while her husband stepped out in a cadet blue blazer and patterned navy tie.
An 'I voted' badge, picked up by Mrs Romney at the polling place and displayed on her coat, provided a small splash of red.

Meanwhile, almost 400 miles away in Delaware, Democrat Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill appeared wearing similar ensembles to the Romneys.
Mrs Biden appeared with her husband, after voting at Alexis I. duPont High School, in Greenville, Delaware, dressed in a peacock blue overcoat and matching shift dress.
Mr Biden also stuck to wearing his party's colour, opting for a bright blue striped tie.

He cast the 287th vote at the Beech Street Center, while his wife was number 286.
He will spend the rest of today traveling to Ohio and Pennsylvania for last-minute campaign stops, while Mrs Romney will stay put in Boston.
