Peru School Overwhelmingly Picks Obama

Posted by wlpo on November 6, 2012

Who needs Ohio and Florida results when the voters have already spoken in Peru.

Second thru fourth graders at Washington Elementary cast their mock election ballots for either President Barack Obama or Republican Mitt Romney Monday.  The winner in a landslide is President Obama picking up 189 votes compared to 92 for Mitt Romney.  There was a bit of election controversy as five students checked both sides of the ballot for both candidates.  Those ballots were considered invalid.

4th Grade teacher Lisa Goddard says they used the mock election to teach kids about the election process.  Students will take home Electoral College maps today and keep track tonight who wins what states.
