Talk about getting out the labor vote.
One determined Chicago woman voted Tuesday morning – even though she was in full-blown labor, with contractions five minutes apart. After casting her ballot, she drove herself to the hospital.
Galicia Malone's contractions began at 3 a.m. on Election Day, she told WBBM Newsradio in Chicago. At 21, this is the first presidential election in which Malone is eligible to vote, so she held out until polls opened.
"I never voted before, so this made a major difference in my life. I wanted it to be a stepping stone for my daughter," she told WBBM. The office of Cook County Clerk David Orr told NBC her water had already broken when she showed up at her polling place, the aptly named New Life Celebration Church.
