LMS Mock Election Results

Our very own Danny Schlaefer organized the LMS Mock Election this year. Along with lessons that were facilitated in classrooms around the school, students were able to cast their votes. Student mock elections have a history of being surprisingly accurate in terms of predicting actual outcomes. Soon, we'll see how well our LMS students have predicted the outcome in Maine.

Below are the results from yesterday's L.M.S. Mock Election 2018. While tabulating the votes I noticed some interesting trends. One of the most interesting was that many voters voted for entirely Independent candidates. All five referendum questions passed by varying totals, with Question 5 passing by the most decisive margin.
