    Milagros and her husband joined the queue at the Platt Regional Library in Tampa before the sun was up. She's a veteran volunteer with the local OFA field office, but this morning carries special significance. As a new American citizen, this is the first time the Venezuelan-born Milagros is eligible to vote.

    "This is my first time voting. I'm really proud to be a citizen of the United States. My husband and I went to bed last night at 2 a.m., and we decided to wake up very early and come here and do it on the first day. We want to make sure our president is re-elected. He's the best for this country. He worries about the middle class. He worries about everybody. He loves America, and he wants to help us. I want to do anything I can [to re-elect him.]"
