"Women couldn't vote when I was born so this was a special election for me"

 

  • Born November 1918 in New York, NY

  • Lived in the same house from birth through age 68, raising two sons there

  • Taught art in New York City public schools for decades

  • Moved in 1987 to Westchester county, where her husband died but she saw her grandchildren start families and the birth of great-grandchildren

  • Moved in 2008 to Maryland, where she now lives in an assisted-living facility

 

"I often have trouble with my memory and need some help getting through my days now, but when my son, daughter-in-law and grandson visited and told me about this election, I had a very clear preference and was so glad when my grandson returned with my absentee ballot. I proudly marked the oval for Hillary Clinton and signed my name to the affidavit. I have voted in all the presidential elections I can remember but I know that women couldn't vote when I was born so this was a special election for me."
