Zachary Taylor, the 12th president of the U.S. didn't vote until he was 62 years old and didn't even vote in his own election because he was a soldier and moved so often he couldn't establish legal residency until he retired.
As a soldier always moving from location to location, Taylor never established an offical place of residence and never registered to vote, He didn't even vote in his own election. It wasn't until he was 62 that he cast his first ballot.

Zachary Taylor -- It was his reputation as a war hero that attracted the Whigs to his candidacy. Taylor, himself, seemed fairly apolitical. He had never even registered to vote and did not even vote in his own election.
