Jerry Emmett, who at 102 years old was born before women could vote, cast a ballot for the woman who could become the first female president of the United States.
"I am getting to vote for Hillary Clinton for president which has been my dream since Bill Clinton was president," Emmett told The Daily Courier of Prescott, Ariz., Tuesday when she turned in her ballot.
Emmett attended the Democratic National Convention this year and announced the number of votes Arizona would be casting for Clinton's nomination.
At a USA TODAY event during the convention, Emmett said she could remember the first time her mom was allowed to vote.
“We all walked out in the middle of the street and cheered like they’re cheering here (at the convention) — because my mother was going to get to have a say! That was something!" she said.
Emmett told USA TODAY that she started a fan club for the former first lady when Bill Clinton was president and has been following her ever since.
Hillary Clinton will campaign in Arizona Wednesday night.
