This is the image for the news article titled Tennessee Student Mock Election DayWheeler Elementary students in third through fifth grade recently participated in the Tennessee Student Mock Election Day. Students completed research on every presidential and senate candidate and read I Want to Be President by Daniel Man where they learned what goes into running a political campaign. As students entered their precinct, they were greeted by librarian Dorthy Fonville who handed them their ballot and directed them to the voting booth. 92% of students voted in favor of reelecting Donald J. Trump for President. Senate candidate Bill Hagerty received 68% of the vote.
