Super Student Primary Mock Election

The Youth Leadership Initiative will run a modified primary mock election from February 22-29, 2016 with results posting on March 1. The online voting activity will coincide with the Super Tuesday primaries and give students an opportunity to weigh in on the presidential hopefuls.

YLI will hold an open primary meaning that students may choose from one of the candidates regardless of party. All candidates will be listed in alphabetical order on the ballot.

After voting for a candidate, the students will be asked to identify which political party they plan to vote for in the 2016 National Mock Election.
