On Tuesday, November 8th, Central School had a mock election in the fourth grade classroom.  CES students lined up at the door to get marked off on the voter checklist, then they were escorted to a voting booth by a fourth grade assistant where they marked their choice and then placed their ballot in the ballot box.  In the afternoon, Mrs. Kane’s class opened the absentee ballots, sorted the ballots, and counted the votes.  144 students voted, and 53 staff members voted.  Hillary Clinton received 151 votes, and Donald Trump received 41 votes.  There were four write-in votes, and one spoiled ballot.  Hillary Clinton won the mock election by 110 votes.
