One of the oldest inhabitants of Slovakia, 101-year-old Anna Starostová from Adamovské Kochanovce in the Trenčín region has not missed a single election day in Slovakia. On March 21, she also cast her vote in the first round of the Slovak presidential election after members of the election precinct commission visited her in her home.
“We were brought up in a different regime and we considered it our civil duty,” Starostová said in explaining her dedication to voting on election days to the TASR newswire.
Starostová said she remembers 10 presidents in her life and that she might even be able to name them all.
Unfortunately, Slovakia’s oldest citizen, 106-year old Hedviga Sekerášová from Dolná Súča, was not able to cast her vote due to health problems, TASR wrote.
