“They are not of age to vote in Election 2016 next month, but many Springfield Public Schools (SPS) students will have the chance to voice their choice during a mock election campaign, that includes real ballot boxes, a mayoral proclamation and a live broadcast of their voting results.
“More than 20,000 students are expected to participate in “SPS Voice My Choice 2016” mock elections during the week of October 3rd. Voting ballots for 25 elementary schools will include only the presidential candidates. Eleven middle and seven high school ballots will include not only the presidential race but also the race for a Hampden County Sheriff and Questions 2 and 3 (the expansion of charter schools and the restriction of food sales from farms where animals are confined to overly restrictive cages, respectively).”
