“I've voted in every presidential election since I could vote and I'm very glad to vote for Hillary. When my husband was still alive, he always voted Republican, but I always cancelled out his vote and voted Democrat. For a number of years, I volunteered at the polling places in town. I really never imagined being able to vote for a woman for president. I think it's about time! These days in Washington, we vote by mail, so my granddaughters, my son and my daughter-in-law came over so we could all make this historic vote together.”
