Westchester schools hold mock presidential elections
Westchester elementary schools are preparing students for the presidential election by holding their own mock votes.
At Ben Franklin Elementary School in the Lakeland School District, teacher Tom McAdams first came up with the idea of a mock presidential election in 1968. He says the school?s students have correctly predicted the eventual winner of the real presidential vote every year since.
Throughout the day Monday, students reported to the Ben Franklin school cafeteria with their classes. They then entered a real voting booth and cast their vote for either John McCain or Barack Obama.
