(CNN) – Peggy Cobb says since 1936 she hasn't missed a single presidential election.
[:35] "I've always been interested in politics and I have always, I have to tell you, I've always looked at both sides of the problem."
It's all part of how she was raised she says. Cobb, 97, is relentlessly upbeat and always seeking to learn new things. Call it a life motto.
[3:58 ]"Furnish your mind well and you will always have a comfortable place to live."
Cobb's positive attitude was put to the test recently when she tried to get the identification that Georgia requires for in-person voting.
First, she had to get her birth certificate. She got the document with little effort, only to hit another obstacle: the name on her birth certificate didn't match other documents.
[2:48] "They said I needed my marriage certificate. For 63 years, 63 years Peggy V. Cobb has been, but they said there's no bending the rules."
But even the marriage certificate wasn't enough.
[3:08] "A friend of mine picked me up and I went down with everything and then we did get a low blow because everything was in order and she said your social security number doesn't comply with our system."
That's when Cobb nearly gave up. But she says she thinks this will be her last presidential election so, with help from a friend, more documents, and more waiting, she finally got her ID.
Georgia's Secretary of State was contacted for comment on Cobb's story but they have not yet responded.
So now that she's able to vote, which candidate will she choose?
[4:18] "For on the record, I'd just rather not say, if that's OK."
