Students cast ballots in mock election

Just 24 hours before the election polls opened Nov. 4, students at the Merwin and Amelia Elementary Schools participated in mock presidential elections.

At Merwin Elementary, students in grades three through five had the opportunity to participate in the nationwide election by casting their votes for president in what is expected to be the largest student vote for a president in history, said Merwin fifth grade social studies teacher Sandy Algiers.
