Obama wins ... no wait, Romney wins

November 6, 2012

If Poteau pre-K students swayed the election, President Obama would be in office another four years.
Ms. Skinner's pre-k class held a mock election Tuesday, with President Obama winning 15 votes to 4.
But ... if the second grade students at Poteau Primary School spoke for the country, Mitt Romney would become the next president of the United States. 
All second grade students voted in their own mock election Tuesday. 
In the past week students have been learning about the election process and what it means to vote.
