BOULDER, Colo. — Going into labor didn’t stop one Colorado woman from exercising her right to vote.

The due date for Sosha Adelstein’s first child was Election Day, but her little girl came early. KMGH in Denver reported she started feeling contractions early Friday morning.

Before going to the hospital, Adelstein and her partner stopped by the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder’s Office to turn in their ballots.

“We ran over there and kind of made it just in time because like shortly after that I was like OK it’s time. We got to get to the hospital,” Adelstein said.

“It’s really important for us to bring our girl into a world we are proud of,” new dad Max Brandel said. “We hope people realize the risks inherent in this election and get out and vote.”
