94-year-old comes 300 miles with family to cast her vote in-person in Detroit

"I wanted to make sure my vote counted," said Mildred Madison."This was very easy. I could sit in my wheelchair."

Signed, sealed and delivered. After driving nearly 300 miles, the son and daughter of 94-year-old Mildred Madison brought her from the Chicago area Monday morning to make sure her vote is counted.

Madison, who is caring for her sister just outside of Chicago, says she usually votes absentee but when her primary ballot was late coming in, she didn't want to take any chances.

While living in Cleveland, she was a member of the city council and sat on the state board of education. Madison has also been a president of the league of women voters in Cleveland and Detroit.

"I wasn't going to miss this at all. It was most important, no matter what I had to do," she said.

94-year-old Mildred Madison, who is registered in Detroit but is currently caring for a sister in Chicago, never received her Michigan absentee ballot.

"My parents could not vote in the south and they make sure that all of their children were going to vote," said Mildred.

2. Definitely one of Cheeto's "problem ballots"

May he drown in them.
