Although the votes won't count in the official election, some high school students cast ballots for their presidential candidate.
Washburn Rural High School students took a break during their Social Studies class to take part in the mock election Tuesday.
Organizers say Presidential elections are a special event that students get excited about. They also say the voting practice is very beneficial for the students, perhaps instilling a lifetime habit of voting.
Social Studies teachers have been talking about the elections for some time, which organizers say helps the students take the election more seriously.
