Wisconsin Democrat Switches Vote

Dateline: Oshkosh, Wis., Nov. 8, 1910. After voting Democratic for more than six decades, 110-year-old James Grinnell declared "I like that man La Follette" and voted the straight Progressive Republican ticket. Despite his advanced age, Grinnell walked to the polling place that chilly November day; he could still dance an Irish jig, too. See his photo and discover more about him in Wisconsin Local History and Biography Articles. And don't forget to vote today.
