Most students at Tolland High School are not yet old enough to vote, but that hasn’t prevented them from civic engagement. Social studies teacher Sarah Goldman’s civics class ran a mock election recently at the school, anView postd the students learned a lot about the electoral process and what it takes to hold an election.
The civics students, all seniors, ran the election, but all students in grades 9-12 had an opportunity to vote on ballots identical (save for color) to the ones Tolland voters will use this November 8.
Watch the civics students describe the experience of running a mock election and share who they voted for and why.
(Update 11/9/16: Trump won the Tolland High mock election with 41% of the vote. 771 students and staff voted.)
