All across America on November 6th United States citizens who were 18 years old and registered voters went to their polls and cast their votes.  At Ferguson-Easley Elementary School the High Expectations Correlate executed an activity to get our students involved.  We held an assembly for candidates for Student Government Association Officers.  The third, fourth and fifth graders participated in this assembly to hear speeches and see videos of the candidates.  Then on November 7th students in these three grades came to the media center where voting booths were set up for them to individually submit their votes electronically.  As they waited their turn to cast their votes the media coordinator gave them a  “Did You Know” quiz on North Carolina voter eligibility.

Guess who the first voters were at our school on November 7th.  The first voters were the students running for the office of president (see them pictured below).  Who do you think they voted for? 

Student Government members vote during the school's election.
