Voting Irregularities

Mr. Teacher reports on the mock election at his school. Talk about your undecideds:

Walking around the room while the kids were voting, I noticed that one child had put a check in the box for McCain, and he was writing in Obama's name on the write-in line. I had to explain to him how this was not proper procedure.

The results, in case you're wondering, follow the trend in child voting this year. .

When the kids heard that Obama had won, they went nuts cheering. I had no idea that 3rd graders were so into the political fray, or that they were such big supporters of Barack Obama.
