Woman in labor stops to vote on her way to the hospital

A Florida woman in labor made a detour to vote early on the way to the hospital Tuesday before delivering her baby.

-----------

"He's like 'Yeah, she's about to have a baby, but she won't go to the hospital to have a baby until she votes.' I was like, okay, what can I do to facilitate her to vote? Where is she? Where can I go to help?" Gonzalez recounted.

Gonzalez followed him outside, where she found the pregnant woman "doing her one, two breathing," and began verifying her identity for the voting process.

" Made sure she had all her ID by everything, gave her a vote by mail, and informed her it needed to be in by November 3rd by 7 p.m.," Gonzalez said. "She said, 'No! No! No! I need to fill it out right now.' So she filled it out. I gave her [the] 'I VOTED' sticker and she was off to the hospital."

1. She should name her baby Justice


Because that is some amazingly dedication to make her voice heard.

2. Even though she may not be a DU member, I think we should record her vote!!!

3. How do yo know who she wanted to vote for?

I mean, maybe she was an avid Trumper.

I give credit to anyone who exercises their right to vote. Excercising that right when you are in labor is just beyond (maybe, though, she could have planned ahead a little?).

But we have no guarantee she was voting on our side.

4. Maybe her baby wasn't due for another week.

Mine was 3 weeks early. So all our plans went out the window. Births are very rarely without some surprises.

5. You're right

Both of mine were early as well. I just think all of us have been trying to vote as early as we could. Just glad she got to vote!
