Woman Going Into Labor Wins Voter-Turnout Game

President Barack Obama kisses a baby at a campaign event at Ohio University, Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012, in Athens, Ohio.

Galicia Malone, 21, stopped by her Chicago polling place at 8:30 this morning while on her way to the hospital to give birth to another member of the polity. At the time, her contractions were five minutes apart. She told ABC Chicago station WLS-TV that she "was determined to vote in her first presidential election, even though her water had broken." ABC forgot to ask Malone whom she voted for, so no matter what happens tonight, someone owes that baby a very photogenic smooch come inauguration photo ops.
