"My first presidential election was in 1940, when I was 21, because my birthday is in late November, and I just missed the 1936 election. I have voted in every national election since then. It will be an amazing 97th birthday this year, celebrating Hillary's win, knowing a gifted woman is finally elected our president. She was my senator in New York, and I have admired her for a long time, for her intelligence, strength, and commitment to bettering the lives of everyone, especially children. I am excited to vote for Hillary and already sent in my ballot.”
