“Betty Lockett had one wish for her 103rd birthday Monday. ‘For my birthday present I asked to have 103 people register to vote,’ said Lockett, a widowed Hammond centenarian, retired nurse and Mississippi native. ... ‘I want people to have that freedom to vote and be counted on Election Day,’ said Lockett... ‘The young people especially need that. Voting gives them a boost and wakes them up to see what’s going on.’  ... So Monday...the League of Women Voters of the Calumet Area [IN] registered voters.”
