If children could vote, Obama would be president for the next four years. You may have heard students around the nation are voting. But how much does this vote really count?
The Educational Publishing Company Studies Weekly is hosting it’s third presidential election for students. They say if students “vote” every four years as part of their education they will be more likely to vote as adults. Studies weekly held a nation wide election in both 2004 and 2008 and both times students accurately predicted the next president
