A lot of pain won't stop her from voting



In Carrollwood’s Plantation subdivision, Carolyn Griner, 71, carried a folding chair with her as she advanced through the line.

“I have a neurological problem. I can walk for miles but if I stand for just a short period of time, I’m in a lot of pain.”

“I think it’s extremely important. Obviously I’ve voted a number of times. I’m glad to see the turnout. America has forgotten to vote, unfortunately. We have got this freedom. We have forgotten why we are here and what we are all about.”

Marlene Sokol, Times staff writer
