DOLTON, IL - A 21-year-old woman in Illinois wasn't going to miss her first chance to vote for president, even though she was in labor.
With her water broken and contractions five minutes apart, Galicia Malone stopped at her precinct in Dolton at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday to cast her ballot while on the way to the hospital.
The polling place is at the appropriately named New Life Celebration Church.
"If only all voters showed such determination to vote," said Cook County Clerk David Orr in a news release. "My hat goes off to Galicia for not letting anything get in the way of voting. What a terrific example she is showing for the next generation, especially her new son or daughter."
