Students Participate In Electoral Process

Federal law requires citizens be 18 years old to vote, but that hasn’t stopped local junior high and high school students from learning how to participate in the electoral process. Thousands of students throughout the Hart School District had a firsthand look at voting in our country through mock elections, special government and history lessons highlighting the election process and tours of a polling place. Dozens of students from throughout Hart District high schools worked as Official Los Angeles County Student Poll workers today.
Linda Storli’s two government classes from Canyon High School walked to the polling place at Cedarcreek Elementary School, bringing all they have learned about elections to life. The students observed people voting and were shown how the ballot looks and how to vote. Storli posed several questions to the students, which they enthusiastically answered.

Also at Cedarcreek were five student poll workers, Daisy Galvez, Kian Taylor and Zeinab Maaz, seniors from Academy of the Canyons, and Lance Ayson and Alicia Cortada, seniors from Canyon High School.

“This is my first election and I wanted to get the whole experience,” Cortada said. “I am learning a lot today.”

Matthew Brown, a Hart High School senior, was stationed as a student pollworker at the Hart School District Office polling place and said he was interested in learning more about the voting system.

“I’m interested in government, and my major is history in college, so this provided great insight into the system,” he said.

Other junior high and high schools held mock elections, some participating in the official California Mock Election. Hart High School and AOC, in addition to Bowman High School, were among 674 schools in the state that voted on Oct. 30 and submitted the votes as part of a statewide program for students. Results of the Mock Election are posted here.

Golden Valley High School involved 50 classes that each acted as a specific state and were assigned that state’s electoral votes, to give the students a better understanding of the Electoral College system.

Earlier this week, Hart High School held a lively discussion between young conservative and young liberal groups, discussing different viewpoints on issues and candidates.

All schools took advantage of the once-in-four-years opportunity to involve, educate and excite students about the importance of voting and to appreciate the freedoms that all citizens in the United States of America enjoy.
