I went and looked at the data, and apparently there are a few more impressive ones. There are 3 voters who are 134, 239 and 247 years old.
I’m assuming that the 111 and 112 entries are all due to dates in 1900. (Probably some on 1/1/1900, some on real day/real month/1900

There may be a newer version each day, so look for the newest version.
I think this is a big nothingburger, due to data entry errors. I’m the first to jump on cases of vote fraud, but I think this is probably something else.
(And they should change the data entry system so that an incorrect date gives an error, rather than entering a default 1900 date)
Hmmm, I looked at the data too and saw a whole bunch of 112 year olds. Did you ask why would so many people have a birth year of 1900? How about when entering voter data they did not have a DOB so it defaulted to or was entered as 1900. I even chased down a couple of names on spokeo.com and one was listed as in the 60’s, another in their 30’s. Stop being so stupid! Geez!
