The elections were so contentious this year that I was glad to see that quite a few seniors voted for the first time.  USA Today profiled Barbara Duvall who, at age 99, survived COVID-19, pneumonia and five days in the hospital and then voted for the first time in her life.  “I guess I didn’t have time before because of my kids, my husband and our family.  I stayed with them,” she said.  More than 2.1 million people over the age of 40 voted for the first time in the November elections, and it may have been enough to push Joe Biden over the top.
