A 102-year-old wasn’t going to let anything stand in her way of voting.

Beatrice Lumpkin of Chicago showed up at a local secure ballot drop box location to mail her ballot earlier this month.

The former teacher was wearing a pink and white, full-service hazmat suit to protect herself from COVID-19. According to CBS News, she hasn’t missed a vote since 1940.

A picture on the Chicago Teachers Union’s Twitter account was captioned “If Bea can do it, anyone can do it. Vote!”
