NASHVILLE, Tenn.--As the nation takes to the polls this Election Day, a 102-year-old woman took part in her civic duty in Nashville.

Susie McClure says she remembers the days when African Americans couldn't vote. "A long time ago we couldn't vote at all. I was living in Murfreesboro then."

McClure says she takes the right more seriously because she couldn't vote, adding she will continue to cast her ballot in the future. "I'm gonna vote as long as I can even if I have to come on a stretcher," McClure stated.
