First-graders in Lisa DeGennaro’s class at John. F. Kennedy Elementary School learned about the electoral process by holding their own election. The voters were informed about the candidates by reading “Duck for President,” “Grace for President” and “My Teacher for President.” Once the voters learned all about the candidates, they created campaign posters. They then stepped into the voting booth, presented their voter identification and cast their vote, electing Grace as the new president.
