It’s never too late: Iowa woman, 91, participates in her first caucus

BURLINGTON, Iowa (KWQC) — Iowa voters showed up to their caucus sites Monday in record numbers and a lot of those people are first time caucus participants.

A Burlington woman in her nineties said this year’s caucus may have been her last chance to get involved. Dorothy Nelson, 91, is a Bernie Sanders supporter.

“I figured I better do it now,” Nelson said. “It’s probably my last chance to do it because I am 91.”

Nelson said her daughter works for the Sanders campaign and encouraged her mother to participate in her first caucus.
