There have been more and more Latter-day Saints elected to government positions in recent years. It’s not uncommon to hear of Latter-days Saints represented in both the Senate and Congress. Who was the first Latter-day Saint elected to a public office?

a.      Joseph Smith

b.      Ezra Taft Benson

c.       Elias Higbee

d.      Fredrick G. Williams

Yesterday’s answer:

c.   6 out of seven British women

"Infant mortality was high. Six out of seven [Mormon British immigrant] women experienced the death of a child"
