Galicia Malone, 21-year-old mom-to-be, surely knows how to rock the vote. According to Illinois' Cook County Clerk David Orr, Malone's contractions were just five minutes apart when she arrived to the polls at 8:30 this morning.

The clerk's office told NBC Chicago that her water had already broken by the time she made it to her voting location at-get this-the New Life Celebration Church.

"My hat goes off to Galicia for not letting anything get in the way of voting," said Orr. "What a terrific example she is showing for the next generation, especially to her new son or daughter."

Our hats certainly go off to her and we wish the best to both new mom and baby. (And we say: share this story with anyone who claims they are too busy to vote!)
