To prepare the students for the Studies Weekly's fourth EveryKidVotes! A mock election taking place on November 1st

The goal is to teach them about civic responsibility, and of course have some fun with basketball.

"We don't want to wait until they get 19 or 20 to learn about the voting process because they're going to have to vote for mayors, governors, and of course the president of the United States."

All the votes cast by students on November 1st will actually be viewed by presidential candidates Donald trump and Hilary Clinton.
