TEXAS: 82 yro Woman votes for the first time, then dies

(NY DAILY NEWS) – An 82-year-old Texas woman checked voting off her bucket list just in time.

Gracie Lou Phillips voted for the first time last week in Grand Prairie, having spent her adult life busy raising her family and demoralized by “misconceptions about voting,” her family told NBC 5.
On Monday, she died.
“She finally registered to vote for the first time in her life,” her granddaughter, Michelle Phillips, told the TV station. “She kept telling everybody ‘I’m voting. I’m going to vote this year and my vote counts.’”
Phillips was using a 100% oxygen tank, which she loaded into a relative’s car to get from hospice to her polling location.

“To have someone literally need oxygen to breathe, pure tank of oxygen to breathe, put it in her car and ask to go on what may very well be the last week of her life, that shows the dedication and priority that people need to look at,” her granddaughter told NBC 5.
