Students Get First Hand Experience in Election Process
This year’s election hubbub was not lost by the second grade students in Mrs. Leen’s class at Lexington Elementary this week. They learned about the electoral process first hand, by staging their own election. Several students were selected by their peers to be the candidates, running for two positions – President and Vice President.
The candidates prepared and delivered speeches, campaigned to gain support from other classroom citizens, and answered questions pertaining to their vision, if elected for office.
The candidates running for President and Vice President were Kendal Brown, Peyton Zoch, Bryer Carter, Genevieve Eberz and Brenly Walker.
Then, on Tuesday morning, November 6, 2012, the citizens of Room 109 exercised their right to vote by placing their candidate selection on a ballot and placing it in a ballot box.
The newly elected office holders were Bryer Carter as President, and Kendal Brown as Vice President.
All of the students participated in the election and enjoyed the experience of voting.
