Students at the "check in" table were given class lists and conducted the check in just like it would be done an actual election. Instead of "Street Name", the poll worker asked "Teacher's Name", then Student Name. The child's name was crossed off the voting list.
Next, voters were handed a ballot and then directed to the polling booths (desks with privacy screens).

After choosing their candidate, the voter proceeded to the "check out" station.

The final results announced at the end of the day:
264 votes for President Barak Obama and
221 votes for Mitt Romney
Our results were then added to the KidVote Result Google Doc. Schools from all 50 states are sending in their class/school results. We will review the information at the end of the week to compare our class/school with the rest of the United States.
This 'election' experience has given the students a better understanding of events that take place at the this special time of the year. Hoping that this experience will remain with them not only for the next four years but for many years to come!
