Lubbock Cooper Mock Election Prepares Middle Schoolers for Next Presidential Election

Posted:

Like so many schools across the nation, Lubbock Cooper held a mock election. But this group of 14- year-olds had the bigger picture in mind.

"Because next election we'll get to vote, and this will show what it's like and to give incentive to kids to vote," said John Getz, Lubbock Cooper student. "It's fun and you should do it."

Students created voter registration cards, ballots, and even a box to slide them in to. Later, students counted up the votes and declared John McCain the winner, 169 to 14.
