My father was an armchair voter. I do recall walking with my mother to PS 54, to vote. I was 4 years old. My recollection's of seeing people entering & closing the curtain while we awaited our turn. The memory of us in the booth is photo etched in my mind! I am fairly certain she pushed the lever for JFK! It was beyond my ability to fathom what was taking place in those booths. The fact that I would shortly re-visit the same location for kindergarten helped me retain those memory I am sure! I don't how other family members voted at the time. At home or in company, I do not recall any discussions on politics, but I think my parents had too much on their hands to engage or entertain political views. I will have to ask my older brother if he recalls the family watching the JFK/Nixon debate on TV. In high school, "The Making of a President" was required reading!
