PHOTO: Obama Speaks of Desiline Victor, 102-Year-Old Miami Woman Who Waited Six Hours to Vote
In his State of the Union address, President Obama noted the story of an elderly Miami woman named Desiline Victor who waited in line for six hours to vote.
"We should follow the example of a North Miami woman named Desiline Victor. When she arrived at her polling place, she was told the wait to vote might be six hours. And as time ticked by, her concern was not with her tired body or aching feet, but whether folks like her would get to have their say. Hour after hour, a throng of people stayed in line in support of her. Because Desiline is 102 years old. And they erupted in cheers when she finally put on a sticker that read 'I Voted.'"
