107-year-old Donella Wilson excited to vote
Donella Wilson in South Carolina has never missed a local or national election since 1947. Sh is 107 years old, and this election is her 13th presidential poll.
Wilson, who was born to parents who were former slaves, says she is not only voting for herself but for those who came before her and fought for African-Americans' right to vote.
"We couldn’t spell vote," Wilson told WISTV. "We didn’t know what the word meant other than we had an opportunity to say something and cast a vote, praying as we go along, that the vote could count to help us as a Negro race."
