2016 Mock Presidential Election

Today, all of the students of The Newton School participated in a mock presidential election. Teachers brought their students to the lower school to find it transformed into a polling location. It was equipped with 3 private voting booths, ballots and a ballot box. After voting, the students were each given an, “I voted” sticker. Once the ballots were counted, the results showed that The Newton School students overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton. She received a whopping 478 electoral votes!

It was a great educational experience for the kids and they loved it! Tomorrow, the students will compare our results to that of the country.

Many thanks to Ms. Swarns (4th grade) for making this happen for our students!
