Voting for the biggest civic education project in the country, the National Student/Parent Mock Election, starts tomorrow. Visit nationalmockelection.org for ballots and voting instructions.
Voting will take place from October 25 through November 3. Everything is free.
All students may now vote on smartphones, tablets, iPads, laptops, or any other Internet related device.
Since the project began over 50 million students, and often their parents too, have learned what it means to be an American by participating in the National Student/Parent Mock Election. Sixty percent of participants are elementary or middle schools and 40% are high schools. Twenty percent of the nation’s schools are participating.
Almost 60 national educational, civic, business and religious organizations cooperate with the National Student/Parent Mock Election.
