Students in Jamie Morse’s government class conducted a mock presidential election on Friday, Nov. 4.
Trump won with 340 votes, and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton received 111 votes.
Students in Morse’s class created ballot boxes and paper ballots and then visited each classroom so students could vote. After all the ballots were cast, the students tallied the results.
Morse has conducted a mock election in every presidential race during her 30-plus years as an educator.
“This is a good experience for the students so they can see how the election process works,” she said.
Morse gave a shout out to student Noah Cook and his father, Dan, who secured “I Voted” stickers from the Cheatham County Election Commission office. Students received a sticker after casting their ballot.
Morse also works with Cheatham County Administrator of Elections Sandy Cherry to register students to vote when they turn 18.
