Students voted on mock ballots for the offices of President, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, and they voted on the 5 statewide referendum questions appearing on Maine ballots.
Due to the challenge of working around Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, the Mock Election Rally and Tally Celebration at the Augusta Armory was cancelled and voting deadlines were extended to Tuesday, November 6 by the National Student Parent Mock Election.
