Mock Election Mirrors Real Election

By  | 

If previous examples speak for the future, their election is likely to mirror the real election in Okemos. Of course, kids are influenced by their parents, and these student voters can often suggest how the election will fall in their neighborhoods.

The results at Kinawa won't come out until Friday.

Suzanne Sullivan organized Kinawa's mock election, and she says its real purpose is to bring these kids into the fray at a young age. The 18 to 24 age group is notoriously apathetic about politics. She says this mock election will inspire them to participate in the democratic process.
