My grandpa cast my grandma's vote for her since 1998. He got mad at her for voting for Clinton the last time they actually went in and voted in person, so at that point, he decided they would vote absentee ballot from then on. She went to the nursing home around 2001, but he continued to cast her absentee ballot for the republican candidates every year until she died.
Looks like we all have family members of the opposing party. Good for your grandpa---for being a Republican and voting against Clinton. :biggrin-new:

She never talked politics much, so I was surprised at how Democrat her family actually was----up to the present time.
