Gladys Miller, 106-Year-Old Woman, Casts Vote For The First Time Ever In This Year's Election (VIDEO)

On Tuesday, Gladys Miller proved to the world that you can never be too old to be a first-time voter.

According WSPA-TV, the 106-year-old South Carolina woman voted for the very first time in this week's presidential election.

Miller, who lives at home with a niece, is said to have cast her ballot in person at the Swofford Career Center in Inman, S.C.

"She can hardly walk but she can push herself here," said Glenda Ponder, a younger friend of Miller's. "It makes me feel good."

Though Miller may be one of the very few (if not the only) 106-year-olds who voted for the first time this year, she wasn't the only to cast a ballot.

According to the Boston Globe, 106-year-old Elizabeth Hinton entered her voting place in Boston, Mass., on Tuesday morning with a big smile on her face. She's been a regular voter since she was 21.

“She’s been a true citizen in that way,” said Hinton's relative Maria Robinson who accompanied her to vote. “There’s something about coming to the polls that makes it so wonderful. If she can get there, why can’t the rest of the people get there?” Some 88 million Americans who are eligible to vote don't go to the polls.

Another 106-year-old, Margaret Harris, is also said to have voted this week.

In this ad by the Obama campaign, Harris, who has 88 grandchildren and great-grandchildren, said that the last time she voted was in 1928 -- but that she would be casting her ballot again this year.
