A legend is born...

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner told reporters this morning of a woman in Escambia County, Florida who would not be denied her opportunity to vote.

Evidently, she  broke her leg in the parking lot outside her polling precinct, but was carried into the polls by her husband to vote -- before going to the hospital for treatment.

"We're grateful for her interest and passion to vote," said Detzner.

Please keep this woman in mind before you complain about having waiting in line to vote today.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
