Obama Wins Montessori Mock Presidential Election
President Barack Obama has been declared the winner of West Side Montessori's mock presidential election held on Friday, Nov. 2. Obama carried 66 percent of the votes, compared to Governor Mitt Romney's 34 percent. Organized and conducted by the Upper Elementary (grades 4-6) election committee, students grades 1-8 were asked to complete a voter registration earlier in the week in order to participate in the mock election. The election committee then tabulated and certified the election results under the supervision of Upper Elementary teacher, Jenny Kettler.
