Utah’s Oldest Active Voter Celebrates Her 107th Birthday

Provo resident MacCene Grimmett has cast a ballot every single election since she’s been old enough to vote — and that’s quite a few elections. MacCene, who has lived in the same dark red-bricked house in northern Provo since 1953, recently celebrated her 107th birthday. She was the oldest active voter in the state in November, when county elections officials came to her house and helped her cast her vote on an iPad. MacCene’s political activity stems from both a passion for local politics and a love for humanity in general.
