Preschoolers, 4K students and other school-age students at Ebenezer’s Oak Creek Child Care Center had their own special election on Tuesday, November 6. Classroom teachers first went through the Weekly Reader special “Election Edition” which provided information on each candidate, and then the children had the opportunity to cast their own vote.
The voting process consisted of two stamps – one that had a picture of Barack Obama on it and the other that had a picture of Mitt Romney on it. The children picked the stamp they wanted to use and then inked the stamp and made an imprint of it on their official ballot. They then placed their official ballet in the ballot box.
In all, 51 children cast their votes. The outcome was 31 for Obama and 20 Romney with Obama being declared the official winner.
