Chapel Hill Elementary School participates in mock election


In light of the 2012 presidential elections, Chapel Hill Elementary School hosted a mock election for its Grade 2 students on Friday, November 2, 2012.

Prior to entering the private voting booths and casting their ballots, the students researched the democratic and republican candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, respectively. In the booths, the students voted for their preferred candidate based on the information collected during the research session.

On Wednesday, November 7, 2012, the elementary school’s news station, WCHES-TV, announced the results of the election; by a vote of 69 to 47, President Obama won the election.
