Southern Door Students Voice Their Political Opinions



U.S. voters may have re-elected President Barack Obama but that was not the case at Southern Door High School.

The Southern Door Student Council hosted its first school-wide mock election.

The results were announced at the end of the day with Mitt Romney having 61 votes and President Barack Obama receiving 54 votes. In the U.S. Senate race, Tommy Thompson won by a landslide with 68 votes to Tammy Baldwin's 45 votes.

Senior Calvin Salmon says some students did not take it seriously but for the most part it went well.

Senior Kaira Rouer says the results were eye-opening but she has an idea on how the mock election could be improved.

Rouer proposes that other schools in the area hold mock elections and see how their opinions differ from Southern Door's.

Sophomore Adam Guilette says the election was "pretty cool" but thinks that participation could be improved by moving the vote from the lunch room to a social studies class.

Other students we talked to also thought it would be a good idea to hold the election during a class. The student council will discuss that idea at its next meeting.
