The first time Dorothy Campbell helped with an election, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, and gas was just 21-cents a gallon. In the early 1940's, when she was only 15-years-old, she worked with her father on an election in Chicago.
"My job was to cross off the name of the voters as they came in to vote."
And when she turned 18, Dorothy placed her first vote, for Harry Truman.
"I was a poll worker, worked and voted in my own precinct and of course they thought that he would not win, but everyone thought Dewey would win, but aha, he didn't," said Campbell, "I realized what a wonderful process this is and it was exciting to work at the polls."
The 79-year-old has worked the elections of 12 U.S. presidents, and seen how the voting process has changed over the years.
