DOLTON, Ill. (AP) — A pregnant suburban Chicago woman didn't let being in labor stop her from voting in her first presidential election.

Cook County Clerk David Orr reports that 21-year-old Galicia Malone's water had broken and her contractions were about five minutes apart. But Orr says she still made the detour en route to the hospital to vote Tuesday morning at the polls at New Life Celebration Church in Dolton.

Orr says his hat is off to Malone and he wishes all voters showed such determination to cast their ballots.
