At least two people went to incredible -- some would say dangerous -- lengths to cast their ballots this afternoon.
In Southfield Township, Mich., an elderly man passed out while working on his ballot and had to be resuscitated by a nurse on the scene. The man lost his pulse entirely before he was revived, reports The Detroit News, and his first question upon waking was, "Did I vote?" A Post staffer is friends with the nurse, Ty Houston, who posted on Facebook that it took him four minutes of CPR to get a pulse. "They held hands, cried and she let him know that she completed his ballot," Houston writes.
To the west, a pregnant Chicago woman cast her vote even after her water broke. Galicia Malone, 21, voted around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, about five hours after her contractions started, according to the Huffington Post. Cook County Clerk David Orr lauded Malone's determination to vote: "My hat goes off to Galicia for not letting anything get in the way of voting," he said. "What a terrific example she is showing for the next generation, especially her new son or daughter."
