Several Union schools will be participating in mock elections Tuesday, November 4.
The Union 8th Grade Center, 6501 S. Garnett, is participating in a mock election through the Tulsa World and its Newspapers in Education program. More than 75,000 students countywide are registered to vote in the mock election, according to the Tulsa World. Students registered to vote by October 10 and will make their selection on November 4.
Students in grades 1-5 at Andersen Elementary School, 1200 S. Willow, are participating in the same mock election throughout the day. Enrichment specialist Linda Snowbarger said students have participated in an election scavenger hunt to search for election facts and spent the month of October learning about election procedures. On Tuesday, parent volunteers will assist students as they sign in, receive a ballot, vote, and get an I Voted sticker.
Not to be left out, Andersen pre-kindergarten students will participate in a “Cookie Election” on the same day. Snowbarger said, “These students will compare how well an Oreo cookie crumbles, dunks, and tastes compared to a Nutter Butter cookie. After researching these cookies, students will vote for the best cookie!”
At Grove Elementary School, 10202 E. 62nd, fifth graders will host a school-wide mock election for president of the United States on Tuesday, November 6. Students at Jarman Elementary School, 9015 E. 79th, are voting Monday and Tuesday, November 3-4, under the direction of the fifth grade.
Union Intermediate High School, 7616 S. Garnett, and Cedar Ridge Elementary School, 9817 S. Mingo, held mock elections last week.
