Dolores Seitz is one of many voting this Election Day at the Eggertsville Hose Company in Amherst.  

“It's our privilege and out duty,” said Seitz.

Nowadays, she gets help getting to the polls from her daughter, Marilyn.  She hasn’t skipped a single election in her nearly 100 years of life. 

“I will be 100 in November,” said Dolores. November 21st to be exact.

When Dolores turned 18, Franklin D. Roosevelt was president. Not long after, her brother was killed in World War II.  She's seen a lot in her life, including the dawn of women's suffrage, which began in New York State 100 years ago. 

“It means everything to me. I'm privileged. I'm proud to vote,” added Dolores.
