#KidVote Mock Election

We are up to our elbows in the presidential election! We are learning how to handle the ballots with fidelity so each person has the opportunity to cast just one vote.

We realized this morning we had to open our poll early, since two-thirds of our high school is on a field trip tomorrow (the official election day). We got started early this morning, and 81 people voted today.

The polls will be open again tomorrow, and then we will report the results on the Kid Vote page.

UPDATE: We added the results of our school’s election here.
