A vote for Obama from one who knows the importance of voting!

 

 

A friend sent me this article from http://www.statesman.com/news/content/news/stories/local/10/27/1027jones.html.  I thought I’d pass it along…

Amanda Jones, age 109, the daughter of a man born into slavery, has voted early for Barack Obama. According to the article “Amanda Jones’ father urged her to exercise her right to vote, despite discriminatory practices at the polls and poll taxes meant to keep black and poor people from voting.”
