Kennedy Library Honors Two

BOSTON - Two election officials will be honored at the John F. Kennedy Library for their efforts to maintain the integrity of the vote in their respective states.

California Secretary of State Debra Bowen and Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner will each be presented a Profile in Courage Award Monday. The annual awards are named for a 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book authored by John F. Kennedy.

Bowen and Brunner both challenged the reliability of electronic voting systems.

Here's a description of the award from the JFK Library, and a photo of the winners with Sen. Edward Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg.
