Rather Than Vote For Trump Or Hillary, A Woman Chose To Die

A woman in Virginia made an unconventional choice when faced with the idea of having to vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

The choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as president is one many Americans are dreading—voting for the lesser of two evils is never an exciting prospect, and these two candidates are the most disliked in American history.

For one woman, death was apparently the preferable option to voting for either of the two.

According to the obituary for Mary Anne Noland in The Richmond Times Dispatch, when “faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68.”

The obituary does not specify Noland’s political views, but does mention that she was a devout Christian and a “faithful child of God.”

Although the writer of Noland’s obituary is obviously being facetious, this mindset speaks to the sentiments of many Americans who cannot bring themselves to vote for either Trump or Clinton.

Regardless of who wins the presidency (and polling is indicating that it will be a close race), we can be prepared for the lowest voter turnout in a long time.
