Mock Election Yields Same Results
Every student at New Smyrna Beach High School was given the opportunity to vote during their own “Mock” election held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
Social Studies teachers escorted students, who chose to participate in the election, to the gym where they checked-in and received a condensed version of the ballot. The options were simply Obama or Romney.
Private voting booths lined the gymnasium giving the students an idea of what an election process is really like. After the ballot was marked and submitted, each student received an “I Mock Voted” sticker supporting the importance of our right to vote.
Ballots were counted by faculty and results were announced at the end of the day. A voice came over the intercom and stated, “Obama won by a landslide.”
