American women did not receive the right to vote until August 18, 1920.  How times change.

The website I Waited 96 Years has been documenting the stories of some of the women born before this date who are now getting the chance to vote for a female president - and they couldn't be more excited about it.

Their campaign started with creator Sarah Bunin Benor posting a photo of her 98-year-old grandmother posting an absentee ballot for Hillary Clinton.

"When I was marking my absentee ballot for Hillary Clinton, it occurred to me that this wish is even more poignant, because I was born in 1918, two years before women achieved the right to vote," Estelle Schultz said, "To see such an accomplishment in my lifetime is momentous."
