Grade 1 students vote for president

WES first-graders cast their ballots for president in a mock election on Monday, Nov. 7 one day before voters decide the 2016 presidential election. The results of the grade 1 election had candidate Hillary Clinton winning by a 2-to-1 margin, with 57 votes compared to challenger Donald Trump who received 28 votes. Eleven students were undecided -- they submitted their ballots with check marks next to both candidates' names.
