Meet Thomas and Nancy. Nancy was never allowed to vote.
Now I present their daughter, Lillie and her husband Horatio. He was a local politician. Even so, Lillie was only allowed to go to the polls twice before she died.
But their daughter? The little cutie in the photo? My great-grandmother? She was the first woman ever elected in the county and she won by a landslide.
I hope you exercised your right to vote today in honor of your grandmothers. I did.
