The third and fourth grade at Seward Elementary School voted for U.S. President and Vice President in mock elections in their classrooms last week as part of their civics education. They lined up, entered the classroom, and helped poll workers find their names on the list. Then they took their ballots into actual polling booths which were borrowed from the city for the exercise, to mark off their choice. Fifth and sixth grades voted today. It was a tight presidential race at Seward Elementary. At first, it looked like the Obama/Biden ticket would win. But when the upper grades voted, and all votes were tallied,
Romney/Ryan had 73 votes
Obama/Biden had 72.
