Mock Primary At Local School Teaches Students How To Vote

Some local students learned about voting today. 

Mock polls opened up at St. Andrews where students in 3rd to 8th grade cast ballots on the presidential election. They also voted separately on each candidate's position on issues of state like Iraq, the economy, health care, education, immigration and the environment. 

"We want to find out a couple of things. We wanted to see who would win with just names. So whose name is recognized the most. And who has the best issues. And we also wanted to see of those coincide. If people are consistent." said Kunal Mehta an 8th grade student at St. Anthony.

The teacher responsible for setting up the mock poll says it's important for them to learn about the democratic process. We'll update you on how the students voted when the results are made available to us.
