Hearnes kindergarten students vote for President | Schools
CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) - On Election Day, November 6, Hearnes kindergarten students participated in a mock presidential election.
Students were introduced to the election process, learning key concepts like how to mark a ballot, how to make group decisions and that each person gets only one vote.
During the election, each student entered a makeshift voting booth and selected their choice for president, either Gov. Mitt Romney or Pres. Barrack Obama, on the ballot.
These young citizens may have a few years before they can officially vote, but their choice was clear. Their results showed Obama as the winner, by a vote of 53 to 32.
