My father used to work for a polling company. I remember the 1960 election. It was his job to get exit polls from voters, and get that info to the company ASAP so they could get it to the news stations. Of course, there were no cell phones then. It was my mother's job that day, (and by extension my job) to hold the pay phone booth open and available in the Bedford Park Blvd IND train. That apparently was the nearest pay phone to the polling place my father was assigned to. I remember standing in that booth with my mother who was pretending to be on the phone and making faces to the people getting out of the station.
