STAR JOURNAL REPORT
Zion Lutheran School students learned a real life lesson in civics Wednesday. Newbold’s town clerk, Kim Gauthier, explained what will take place Nov. 8 in polling places throughout the United States.
Newbold poll workers helped students sign their names, then handed each a ballot with two questions.
Students were asked to vote for the President of the United States and also put an X next to the name of a teacher who will be taped to the wall as part of a food drive contest in November.
Students also voted, using an electronic device, for their favorite school lunch. Kindergarten teacher Vicki Humann says she believes its important that students get an idea of what the election process entails, especially with the Presidential election. Humann’s Kindergartners will be eligible to vote for real in about a dozen years.
