Did you see the great article in the Des Moines Register about our school election? This election was made possible by Mrs. Flomo and Mrs. Ford, who set up this amazing day. They thought of every detail. All of our kids registered to vote a few weeks ago. The polling place was set up with everything from voting booths to a table to check in and pick up your ballot. The fifth graders were our poll workers. Students even received an "I Voted!" sticker after casting their ballots. It was amazing. The results were compiled on a chart. We even had an Electoral College.
Before voting, my kids watched this fun video which explains the whole election process.
