McCain stepped out of a sport-utility vehicle Tuesday morning with wife Cindy as a small crowd cheered "Go, John, go!" and "We love you!" One person carried a sign that read, "Use your brain, vote McCain!"

They walked into the church, cast their ballots and left within minutes, avoiding any lines.

McCain signed a poster and gave the thumbs-up sign before leaving without speaking to reporters.

Earlier, McCain could be seen on the patio of his high-rise condo, pacing with a cell phone and a large cup of coffee.

McCain was heading to a rally in Grand Junction, Colo., and a volunteer site in New Mexico before returning to Phoenix.
