Supervisor of Elections Partners with Pasco County Schools to Sponsor Student Mock Election
Pasco County FL - Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, Pasco County, in conjunction with Pasco County Schools Social Studies Department, is sponsoring a districtwide student mock election. The ballot with both the gubernatorial candidate race and the US senate race is available to over 68,000 students countywide. Participating students will receive an “I Voted” sticker, and will be able to view the results of their election on the Supervisor of Elections’ website, www.pascovotes.com, after 7:00 p.m. on election day, November 6, 2018.
“We couldn’t be happier about our involvement in the student mock election as an addition to our ongoing voter education plan throughout Pasco County Schools,” said Brian Corley. “It’s never too early to engage our future leaders in the process.”
Students cast their ballot using a web-based voting platform known as DoubleClick Democracy which is supported by KidsVoting USA. A statewide student mock election is provided through the joint efforts of the Lou Frey Institute (LFI) at University of Central Florida and their Florida Joint Center for Citizenship, the Florida Association of Social Studies Supervisors, and the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections.
