Some Shoals Elementary School students have done more than just listen to their parents and others talk about this year’s election. The school children Dusty Hayes’ first grade class took part in their own mock election.
Taking part in a special Social Studies Weekly Mock Presidential Election, the students can view their state as well as others and keep up to date on who is in the lead.
Each student received an “I Voted” sticker, and school officials say they are excited to see if the student election vote matches the results of the real presidential election on Tuesday. While not all students voted, among those who did, GOP candidate Donald Trump won by an overwhelming margin.
Trump pulled 100 votes, to 32 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and two votes for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
