Mock Election at George Washington Elementary School

On Monday, November 7, 2016 George Washington students participated in a mock Presidential election. After a visit from Hillside Honorable Mayor Angela Garretson who spoke to them on the importance of exercising their right to vote, students cast their ballots as a culminating activity. This was preceded by a unit of study on the U.S. electoral process which the students were engaged in during social studies lessons. The George Washington School election results were as follows; 222 votes for Hillary Clinton and 22 votes for Donald Trump.
