Democratic politician John F. Kennedy was narrowly elected president of the United States.

Kennedy beat Nixon in one of the closest presidential elections of the twentieth century on November 8, 1960. Out of a record 68.8 million ballots cast, Kennedy won the popular vote by a slender margin of 120,000 votes. He received 303 votes to Nixon’s 219, and 14 unpledged electors from two states—Alabama and Mississippi—voted for Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia, as did one faithless elector from Oklahoma. Democrats maintained large majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate in the concurrent federal elections. Kennedy was the first person born in the twentieth century to be elected president, and he was the youngest person elected to the post at the age of 43. In addition, he was the first Roman Catholic elected to the presidency.
