New Hampshire students to vote in mock presidential primary

The Associated Press

CONCORD — New Hampshire students will be weighing in on the presidential primary in a mock election being held next week.

More than 20,000 students in grades K-12 from 146 schools will be voting in the New Hampshire Primary Mock Election on Tuesday — one week before adults head to the polls for the real deal.

The mock election is coordinated by New Hampshire Public Television. Spokeswoman Grace Lessner says students have been preparing by researching candidates and learning about issues facing the state and nation.

NHPT's mock general election began in 1996 and the mock primary election was added in 2000.

Station officials expect to post final results to the station's website by 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
