GENERAL ELECTION DAY
November 6, 2012
Voters flocked to the polls on Election Day and North Trail
Elementary served as a polling location.
The gym at the school hosted a precinct location for the
City of Lakeville. It was a busy place!!
Meanwhile over in the First Grade classroom area the students were
having a “mock election” of their own. First they register to vote.
Then it was off to the polls!
They had three voting booths lined up. On the ballot, the President of
the United States!
Then it was time to drop the fold the ballot and
place it in the ballot box.
The final vote total for North Trail First Grade Precinct 1:
Barack Obama 47 Mitt Romney 32
At Boeckmann Middle School classrooms were organized into
“States” and students voted to select their President.
Brent Grengs classroom became “Election Central”, and he used the
SMARTboard to provide the updates.
Students would deliver the updates as they came in!
Students followed the action on the in-house television system. The
cheers could be heard as the results were announced.
Grengs was able to use the interactive features on the SMART board
to update the results, complete with a running total.
