My 86 year old mother stood in line proudly and voted!

This is 86 year old Ursula Von Rittern, my mother. She immigrated to this country from war torn Germany¬†after WWII and settled in NYC. She has voted with an absentee ballot for the past ten years so she doesn’t have to stand in the long lines. “This year I am voting in person dammit, no matter how long I have to stand in the cold, this is too critically important!” So – we did! GO MOM!
Note the black folding chair in one hand and her cane in the other, she came prepared!
