Election results




STUDENTS WEIGH IN ON SCHOOL BOARD AND MAYOR,  LEARN ABOUT GOVERNMENT AND CIVICS

This election, over 32,000 Mecklenburg County students learned about government and civic participation by participating in a community-wide mock voting event hosted by Kids Voting Mecklenburg.

This participation rate is higher than the adult voter turnout %. Way to go, students!

K-12 students experienced elections through learning about and voting on real candidates and issues – this year, offices included mayor and school board - and taking part in community service-learning. While the results aren’t official, they are counted and reported.
