108 year old woman casts her ballot for Obama

Carrie Walker has seen a lot in her 108 years, but what she will tell you is that she is excited about this historic presidential election. Walker was born in 1900 and lived during a time when our country was divided among both sexes and races.

This is one of my all-time favorite picture, it's students from Prarie View A & M in Texas marching 7.3 miles to the polls on the first day of early voting. The story accompanying this photo is worth following this link if you didn't catch it the first time...
