Highland Park Central Holds Mock Elections

Highland Park Central held mock elections today for their students to learn about the political process. Students in every grade got to participate in the event.

The kids learned about the candidates and some of their views on topics like education and the environment.

Then, they voted on which candidate they wanted to be president.

One of the teachers who coordinated the event, Carol Condley, says she hopes it gets children excited about politics. She also hopes that excitement rubs off on parents and makes them go to the polls.

Younger students didn't vote for the president. They got to vote for things like their favorite television shows, snacks, or favorite cookie.
