Public officials from every level of government can help make the Mock Election event in their "states or districts" schools an exciting occasion for the students and their parents too. The possibilities range from participating in a candidate's forum with students and parents to talking to students about election reform, to attending a Mock Election Day event as the votes come in. Students who have an opportunity to meet and interact face to face with you will have an experience they will not soon forget.
Let them learn about your positions on the issues, your plans for the future, the basics of government, and how they can make their own voices heard in their democracy. Your participation can empower them to participate for a lifetime. To be put in touch with your state's Mock Election coordinator, or with other public officials who have participated, please contact us.
