No Excuses: 102-Year-Old Woman Proves Everyone Should Vote

A 102-year-old former Chicago teacher wasn’t going to let anything stand in her way of voting.

Beatrice Lumpkin showed up to mail her ballot in a pink and white, full-service hazmat suit last week.

A picture on the Chicago Teachers Union’s Twitter account was captioned “If Bea can do it, anyone can do it. Vote!”

Up until the pandemic hit, she still regularly attended protests to help fight for teachers’ rights.

Utah’s early voting starts on October 20th. You can still register to vote up until October 23rd online or by mail over at

What do you think life will be like if you live to be 102-years-old?
