ACPS Student Mock Election Has Trump Winning…Clinton Third

November 1st, 2016 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County School Superintendent's Student Advisory Board came up with the idea to create mock Presidential ballots for all ACPS high school students (grades 9-12) to cast in an effort to get students more engaged in the political process and to help them become more civic-minded young adults.

Conducted in all English classes, and in conjunction with the Allegany County Association of Student Councils' Mock Presidential Debate, a total of 1,941 completed ballots were collected out of nearly 2,500 high school students. The results were as follows: Trump, 58%; Johnson, 24%; Clinton, 18%.
