You often hear about how important it is to vote.

Well, one new mom took it to heart.

Yesterday was Galicia Malone's first time to vote in a presidential election.

Not even a little thing like going into labor was going to stop her!

The 21-year-old's water broke and she still went to the polls.

Her contractions were five minutes apart when she voted.

Afterwards she drove herself to the hospital where she had a baby girl.
