Quoting toomanypoodles:

 Kennedy...and I voted for Ronald Reagan in November of '79.

 

 Me too but Reagan won in November of 1980.  It was my first election and I had to register when I was 17 because my birthday is November 3rd, just a couple of days before the presidential election that year.

 A small funny story about how things can grow in your mind and alter reality:

When I was growing up, my mother, who idolized John F. Kennedy, used to tell me all the time that she was in the hospital giving birth to me and therefore missed her first time voting, and missed her chance to vote for JFK.  I heard this for years.  Well, when I was in high school, and taking history, I realized that JFK's election was in 1960 and I was born in 1962, Kennedy was already president (in fact he was assassinated in 1963).  My mother, who had turned 21 in September right before I was born, and this was voting age, indeed missed her first time to vote, but had inflated the importance of missing that vote by insisting she didn't get her chance to vote for JFK because of my birth.  :-)

Kennedy had just been assinated and Johnson was sworn in.  My first vote was for Reagans second term.

Carter was President. I was born January 20, so I share inauguration day with the presidents. 2004 was the first election I voted in.
