JFK to Fly to Massachusetts to Vote for Edward Kennedy

Nov. 4, 1962 - President Kennedy will fly to Massachusetts tomorrow to do his bit on Election Day for the Democratic party and his brother Edward. With perhaps 45 million other Americans, Mr. Kennedy will cast his ballot on Tuesday in this year’s midterm elections. Thirty-nine seats in the U.S. Senate, 435 in the House of Representatives, and 35 governorships are at stake. The President’s official residence is an apartment at 122 Bowdoin Street, Boston. He will vote in the basement of a police station on nearby Joy Street. Mr. Kennedy will undoubtedly pull the lever for the Democratic ticket. The most famous name on it is Edward M. Kennedy, his 30-year-old brother, and the party’s candidate for the U.S. Senate. If the still-tense international situation makes the trip impossible, the President’s absentee ballot — already received in Boston — will be counted.
