Sixth graders at Morton Middle School learned how an actual presidential election could go. Yesterday, students were able to cast their votes for the 2016 presidential election in the "Every Kid Votes" campaign. A total of 185 6th graders submitted a ballot.
In order to vote, students were required to show identification, in this case, it was their student agenda, and provide a signature.
When the polls closed, at the end of 6th period, a selected group of students were responsible for tallying the votes. Several students counted the number of registered voters, while others separated the ballots into groups.
The final vote count came to 108 Trump, 66 Clinton and 11 for Other.
