Ninety-three-year-old Frank Tanabe casting his vote in Hawaii. Tanabe is in the final stages of cancer. This image of him voting, likely for the last time, went viral. What an inspiration.
More on this story from CNN’s Political Ticker:

According to his daughters, Frank has never missed a presidential election, and wasn’t about to let his illness deter him from voting this time around. When his absentee ballot arrived on Wednesday, his daughter, Barbara, sat at his bedside and read aloud the candidates and issues. “I helped him. He either nodded ‘yes’ or shook his head ‘no’,” Barbara said. “He didn’t always vote for my candidate.” Nonetheless, she followed his directions and mailed in the completed form. He hasn’t been able to speak since.
