NY Man Just Voted In His 21st Presidential Election


A New York man has just completed an amazing milestone. You don't have to be a math whiz to figure out that to vote in 21 American presidential elections, you'd have to be around for a long time. So at 104 years of age, Samuel Bovalino of Syracuse, New York has been around for a long time.

Samuel cast his first presidential vote in 1940 for Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt went on to an unprecedented third term in the White House. The election Tuesday was Mr. Bovalino's 21st time to vote for a president, though he won't reveal his choice and is too much of a gentleman to say anything bad about either candidate.

He says, "I do believe in voting, it is a wonderful thing and very important that you do it every time." He also revealed that his favorite president in his lifetime was John F. Kennedy.
