Michigan Mock Election Coverage
The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that yesterday Ed Wodekï¿½ï¿½ï¿½s classroom at Leland Public School looked more like a campaign headquarters as young politicians bustled about in a flurry of red, white and blue. They are getting ready to host 1,000 students from 10 schools in Leelanau County and Traverse City who will hear from state and national candidates and cast their votes. This yearï¿½ï¿½ï¿½s rally will also be broadcast live over the Internet by MichiganLiveEvents.com and at Absolute Michigan.
Wodek created the project 20 years ago as a way to engage students in learning about civics and democracy and students research a candidate to speak on their behalf or serve on committees charged with coordinating public relations, construction, technology, painting, programs and ballots.
This year, Leland students also will tabulate statewide results for the National Student/Parent Mock Election, a program that coordinates affiliated mock elections.
A special thanks to everyone helping to sponsor, cover and promote this event:
