5th Grade Mock Election
The fifth-grade classes set up a mock election for the Presidential candidates on Tues. Nov 3rd. They have been studying the voting process and what it takes to be the President of the United States. They have made posters to put up and down the hall with each candidate's view of some topics. They learned how important it is to vote and how the people (popular vote) affect the electoral college votes for each state. Students are assigned specific states to watch for homework and will come back Wednesday to color in the big map in the hallway.
Each student in grades Kinder through 5th grade filled out a voter registration form and brought it with them to the table where two 5th grade students marked their names off the list and handed them a ballot and a "Future Voter" sticker. There were 9 voting booths set up along the hall for the students to mark their ballots secretly. Afterward, each student put their vote in the box and they were counted by Mrs. McBride and Mrs. Andreski. The results were Trump with the win at 78% (133/170 votes) and Biden with 22% 37/170 votes).
Let's see how close our Bremond Elementary students are to the real thing.
