MHS Students Participate in Mock Election and Gain Hands-on Civic Experience

MHS Students Vote in Mock Election

On October 11th and 13th, Malden High School Social Studies students participated in Mock Elections based on the November 8th ballot.  Students cast their votes during their History and Social Studies classes in either the library or the gallery. Teachers had been preparing the students to be as informed as possible in terms of candidates running for office and what questions are on the ballot.  Questions 1 and 4 generated many rich conversations. In total 1,080 students voted. 

City Clerk Greg Lucey and Assistant City Clerk Carol Ann Desiderio provided voting machines and sample ballots so that the students could experience a “real” election and become more familiar with what to expect at the polls. “We find that these mock elections actually get kids talking about important issues and by having the experience, we believe they are more likely to vote in real elections when they are eligible,” said Malden High School Social Studies Teacher Kerry Veritas.
