A ninety-six-year-old woman from Iowa shares her thoughts on this year's election. 

Ethel Ward of Missouri Valley, Iowa was born in 1920; the year the 19th Amendment was ratified and women were given the right to vote. 

As she has lived through a lot of political history, today she is witnessing another milestone in women's history.

She explains the importance of voting by saying, "I think it was high time that the women got the vote...I can't imagine not being able to vote. It just means so much to me and it should to everybody."
