I don’t remember election time as being discussed when I was young. Roosevelt’s name came up a lot - CCC [Civilian Conservation Corps], etc.


The only funny time I recall when my mother said she was voting for Alf Landon because he was from Kansas (both of my parents’ home state). My father made remarks about him but mom stuck to her original thoughts. After I was married, we both voted Republican and there as very little discussion.
