Baldwinsville Voter Brings Grandchildren To The Polls

Baldwinsville, N.Y. (DIA) – The polling booths in America are flooded with people today as they vote in the 2022 midterm elections.

No one quite understands the importance of voting like 80-year-old Diane Kiner, who voted in Baldwinsville this morning. Kiner has voted in every election since she was 18 — that’s over 60 years of voting.

“I’m 80, you do the math. I voted the first day I could vote for everything,” Kiner said.

As she has done in past elections, Kiner brought her two grandchildren with her to the polls this morning.

She believes that it is essential for the youth to understand the importance of voting and that voting is one of the most important practices you can do in America.

“It is a right that we need to continue to exercise, and if we don’t continue to exercise it, we might lose it,” Kiner said. “We need to preserve it, and it passes on and they will pass it on to their children.”
