Students voted in a mock midterm election held in history teacher Carol Green’s room and staffed by AP U.S. Government students all day last Thursday. All upper school students could participate regardless of age, filling out ballots and receiving “I Voted” stickers from the California Secretary of State in order to learn about the real voting process. According to election results released by Green in an email on Monday, 149 students voted.
