Mock Election at Bothwell

While Americans go to the polls tomorrow, it was voting day at one U.P. school today.

Fourth- and fifth-graders at Bothwel Middle School students participated in a mock election.

They not only cast their vote for president, but they also learned about following proper voting protocol.

Fifth-grade teacher Kathryn Russell says the students have been learning about the democratic process in their social studies classes.

She hopes the mock election will help show them how fortunate they are that they’ll one day have the right to vote.

The students will take their results and compare them to the national returns on Wednesday.
