James Myers is 101-years-old. He cast his first vote way back in 1932 when Franklin Roosevelt was elected to the White House. Since then, he said he's never missed an election.

Myers drove himself to his polling location and cast his ballot Tuesday. He said he's definitely noticed a change in the election process over the years.

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

Over the past century, Myers has lived through 18 different presidents.
