Horeseheads school stages mock election

Students at St. Mary Our Mother School in Horseheads may be too young to vote, but they prepared well for the future by taking part in a mock presidential election Oct. 27.

The event involved voter registration, sixth-grade student candidates giving speeches, students casting ballots for the candidate of their choice and a winner being announced after the votes were counted. Festivities also included patriotic songs and the Pledge of Allegiance in a red, white and blue atmosphere.

School officials noted that the mock election is not only fun, but also a valuable tool for encouraging students to vote when they become of age.
