On Election Day (11/7/2017), students at Roosevelt Middle School in Cedar Rapids held a mock election for Cedar Rapids mayor. The students’ top voter getter differed substantially from Tuesday night’s final results.
Congratulations to the teachers and staff who sponsored this mock election! Congratulations to the students who conducted candidate research, a forum for candidates, and created campaign posters! I do not know how many “eligible” student voters participated, but I bet you put the adult eligible voter turnout to shame. – Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
