SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. --After eight decades of not exercising her 19th amendment right, a 106-year-old Spartanburg County woman voted for the very first time Tuesday.

Gladys Miller, a black woman still living at home with a niece, cast her vote at the Swofford Career Center near the Fingerville community.

At her old age, Miller is a woman of few words, but her big step Tuesday wasn't lost on her friend Glenda Ponder who registered Miller to vote a few weeks ago.

"It makes me feel real good," Ponder said.

Miller, quite simply, said she felt "all right" after voting.

As for why she never voted before, Miller didn't have much of an explanation, but she said she just never did despite other women in her family doing so for all these years.
