I remember our Kindergarten teacher had us do a similar activity ... 1976 that was. Seems to be a thing during Presidential election years where we live.

I would be concerned if these were college professors, collecting data about how voting-age kids were voting, along with name and address.

I would be concerned if there was open debate in the classroom that morphed into bully-ish behavior either in or out of class, and the bully-er wasn't taken to task regardless of ideology.

I would be concerned if the teacher said the lesson plan for the activity was mandated by the school board or Superintendant of Schools, and couldn't be deviated from in any way, or if any part of teacher or student performance rating was dependent on which candidate was picked.

Otherwise its fairly normal, going back as far as I can remember. And I'm gettin up there!

Haha wow, I haven't thought of this in years but I actually remember "voting" for Bush in sixth grade. The only logic that went into that vote was that I liked the band Bush.

Yeah, just take your kids out of school so the rest of us wage slave suckers can pay for their welfare later in life. Animal hides, fish and ginseng are all you need to make it in the world today.


But no schools mean, no school tax and thats where the lions share of local taxes go... (never happen though, teachers are agents of the Matrix) Its actually pronounced GinSANG in West Virginia (don't you watch Appalachian Outlaws? Jeez wadda ya live unda a rock?)

Most people are single issue voters.

Why are these children's opinions less valid again?
We should count the votes.

Adults legitimately vote for Trump because Hillary is a Hologram Reptilian. I doubt even the children are creative enough for such partisanship, they should be allowed to vote.

the election for JFK took place in 1960 he took office in1961, he beat Nixon.

George H. W. Bush ran a oil company from the 50's to 1964, he ran for the senate in 1964 and lost, his first office was in 1966 as a republican representative from the 7th district of texas.

no way you could have voted for him. in 1960.


That situation will be fixed with a Mandela claim...

please do, I'd be interested in hearing what they say.


My wife called them today. The school said they voted behind a curtain. The teacher said the part where they added their address, age and signature was a voters registration card. They said all the kids will be bringing home the registration card. Our son did not bring it home today so we will see.
