Voting for Obama on her deathbed

Posted by karmalily on October 30, 2008

From ABC4 Charleston:

For a 93-year old North Charleston woman, casting her vote was a matter of life and death….

“She said I don’t know if I’m going to live that long, but I plan on sticking around to vote for him,” said M. Fitzgerald.

Fearful that November was too long to wait her daughter sent for an absentee ballot. It arrived last week.

“she made her mark, and we put it in the envelope, my brother and I walked to the mailbox, it was 11 o’clock Wednesday morning and I said ‘Mom its in the mail, you’ve done your thing, Barack’s going to win,’ and she kind of smiled and it was kind of a deep sigh, a sigh of relief, and in less than an hour later, she died,” said M. Fitzgerald.
