Badass of the Day: Woman in Labor Votes En Route to Hospital

You thought your voting experience was painful? Check it: Galicia Malone, a 21-year-old from Dolton, Illinois, went into labor and somehow managed to vote before heading to the hospital. Her water had already broken by the time she reached her local polling station, according to Cook County Clerk David Orr.


“I wanted this to be a stepping-stone for my daughter,” Galicia, a first-time voter, said.

Galicia, we salute you! That kind of dedication is what makes democracy go ‘round.
