Mock Election Today

vote-1.jpg( Listen to this Post)

Today our school is having their 3rd annual Mock election. This year we focused on NYS Governor’s election. We spent weeks learning about the candidates and the importance of voting.
I want to thank all of the students who worked hard to make this day happen. It is about 5 am and I am just getting up. I want to thank all of the “electioneers” who volunteered to work. Mr. Ferranni’s Class did a wonderful job decorating the auditorium and all the classes made cool election posters.

This morning we have some students who will be reading their written essays “Why is it important to vote?”, we also have 5 short Movies about the election. Really election commercials, only in these elections ads no one says anything bad about a candidate. Well here we go, after the election you can blog your thoughts and responses to the election process.

Mock Election Day!

I love this day.

    Today I had a great time at the mock election. It gave me the chance to vote for the first time in my life. I feel the candidate I voted for will put money in the pockets of the people.

    I am glad Elliot Spritzer won becaue in my family we had a bet. My aunt bet John Faso would win but I bet Elliot Sprizter won and I rubbed it in her face.
    During the elelction Ms Brodeick showed 5 films. One of them was mine. I liked btu I felt shy when they showed it. I want to make another film, but I felt self concious when they showed it.
