Lamberts Mill Academy

Lamberts Mill Academy

Students in Mr. Eugene Bell’s Social Studies class studied the 2008 Presidential election and on December 12th had the opportunity to cast their vote for Barack Obama or John McCain. Thanks to the Union County Board of Elections, the students experienced all the components of a polling site, including a real voting machine, registration table, poll workers, and the ever-present sign that proclaimed, "Vote Here Today". After casting their vote, students received an “I Have Voted” sticker which they wore proudly throughout the day. 

Students and staff from Hillcrest Academy South and Westlake School also participated in the voting. After the polls closed, the numbers were tallied and at the end of the school day Barack Obama had won by 56 to 13 votes.
