JOHN F. KENNEDY ON VOTING




This post was previously used in the run up to the 2012 Elections. Kennedy's message on voting was recorded days after the Cuban Missile Crisis. Election Day 1962 fell on the same day that it did in 2012.

I have altered Kennedy's quote just SLIGHTLY to reflect when election day is this year.

"In these tense and anxious weeks, I know that every American citizen wants to know what we can do for his country. Not everyone can serve in our armed forces or serve our government, but there is one thing you can do. There is one way you can indicate your devotion to freedom. There is one way in which we can show how strongly we believe in our democracy. Tuesday, (November 4, 2014), is Election Day. I hope every American will turn out and vote -- every American, every member of his family -- and show the world how strongly we believe in freedom, how strongly we believe in our country, how strongly we believe in democracy."

- John F. Kennedy, 31 October 1962
