Local students cast ballots in mock election

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Some young students from Tucson are making sure their voices are being heard this election season.

Sewell Elementary School is participating in the “Kids Voting USA” program.

It is a program that gives students the opportunity to participate in the electoral process.

Teachers have been working with the kids, explaining the voting process based on grade-appropriate curriculum and also encouraging parents to do the same at home.

On Monday, the students cast their vote for president and vice president, Arizona senator, Arizona supreme court and Proposition 206 (minimum wage).

One fifth grader said she is looking forward to the day she turns 18 and can officially cast her ballot.

“It feels good to have a voice in the decisions that are made," Triniti Dorr said. "It’s very exciting.”

Once the school has the election results, they say the will share them with the public.
