North Charleston Woman Uses Last Moments In Life to Vote:
"Very little was missing in Dora Fitzgerald's 93 years of life, she had a marriage of 65 years and family that spreads generations, but politics was never a passion until the final year of her life."She was very moved for Barack Obama's passion for fixing things, and his articulate way of delivering his message and she just decided she was going to vote for him," said her daughter, M. Fitzgerald.
…"She said I don't know if I'm going to live that long, but I plan on sticking around to vote for him."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 it's 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.…Mrs. Fitzgerald was born in 1915 and according to her family, she voted in 19 presidential elections."
