SOUTHWICK, Mass. (AP) - A 104-year-old woman who’s been a voter in her Massachusetts town since 1958 has done it again.

The Westfield News reports (https://bit.ly/2eEH1ay ) that Florence Warriner, the oldest living voter in Southwick, cast her ballot on Thursday afternoon at the town hall.

Warriner says she always votes. She wants to make an impression. She didn’t say who she voted for.

She was one of about 800,000 Massachusetts voters using the early voting period to cast ballots ahead of Friday’s early voting deadline and Tuesday’s election.

And she’s not the only centenarian in the western Massachusetts community to have voted early.

Bernardina Battistoni, who is 103 years old, voted on the first day she could.

Southwick Council on Aging Director Cindy Sullivan says they demonstrate why there’s no excuse not to vote.
