Bethlehem man has voted since 1932

Even with long lines at the polls, one Bethlehem man was sure to keep his decades-long voting record going.

James Myers is 101 years old and he cast his first vote back in 1932, when Franklin Roosevelt was elected.

He says he's never missed an election since and he even drove himself to his polling location Tuesday.

He says voting has changed over the years.

"Well it's gotten more electronic. That's all I can remember about it. More intense of course, some of these issues that come up," Myers said.

Eighteen different presidents have been in office during Myers' lifetime.
