4th Grade Votes at Springville!

Today all Springville fourth graders came to their hallway polling station, presented their voter identification cards, and voted in the Presidential election. Voting was the culminating activity in a study of the election process.

The votes (including absentee votes!) were tabulated at lunch, and the tallies were as follows: Donald Trump 16 votes, Hillary Clinton 65 votes.Our fourth graders chose Hillary Clinton as their next president, and learned a great deal about democracy and the electoral process. Many thanks to our fourth grade teachers for facilitating such a great learning experience!
