“I voted because I felt that I should vote, I was able to go so I went,” Mrs Kefford said.

Mrs Kefford said a gentleman at the polling centre saw her date of birth.

“He looked down and saw the 19thof November 1916 and he said ‘that can’t be right,” Mrs Kefford said.

She said when she was younger her family told her to vote for Labor Party but it changed when she got married.

“-I asked my husband who I should vote for and he said ‘you must please yourself and make up your own mind’ so he stood his ground and I stood mine,” Mrs Kefford said.

Mrs Kefford said she loved Paul Keating for his wit but has changed her vote over the years.

She said this year she voted for the Nationals because she met Terry Redman at Escare and she liked his manner and approach.

“He said ‘oh what are you doing here’ and I said i’m here with the Wattle Club, but not like the flower’ and he said ‘I’m the leader of the National Party,” Mrs Kefford said.

“There was a big group of them and they were all very tall and I said to him ‘I thought you were a lot of basketball players coming in,” Mrs Kefford said.

Mrs Kefford attributes her wit and humour to playing bridge at the Senior Citizens Centre.

“It keeps the grey matter working,” Mrs Kefford said.
