Mock Election Results

The Highland Mock Election was a big success. The results of the students at Highland mirrored the results of the Illinois primary. When I overheard some seventh grade girls talking about tax policy on their way to lunch, I knew the project made an impact.

Here are the the final results:
Democratic Primary Results

  • 583 votes cast in the Democratic Primary
  • 486 (83.6%) votes for Barack Obama
Green Party Primary Results
  • 64 votes cast in the Green Party Primary
  • 37 (57.8%) votes for Howie Hawkins
Republican Ballot
  • 324 votes cast in the Republican Primary
  • 157 (48.6%) votes for John McCain
