One 104-year-old woman voted in Cedar Falls today.

Margaret Cundy has voted in almost every election since 1932, when she was 21 years old.

She was born before women were allowed to vote, and she says voting is a privilege.

“It’s wonderful to be able to vote, to read, to think, and to remember the old days,” she says.

Margaret says voting is a little different today compared to the past, but that doesn’t stop her from heading to the polls.

She has a message for everyone who is old enough to vote.

“They should be happy they are able to vote. There’s so many people in the world that do not have any say,” she says.
