With Election Day drawing near, Williamson County high schools conducted a mock presidential election to give students the experience of what voting is like.

According to data compiled by WCS, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump led the polls, winning every school but Renaissance High School where he lost to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by a 5 percent margin. Trump won by the largest margin at Brentwood (51 percent), Fairview (59 percent), Summit, and Page High Schools and won by 44, 43, and 46 percent of the vote at Centennial, Franklin, and Ravenwood High Schools respectively.

Independent presidential candidate Gary Johnson received 13 and 15 percent of the vote at Fairview and Independence, respectively.

“Voting is how we indicate the direction we want our country to go in,” WCS K-12 Social Studies Curriculum Specialist David Rector said.  

“Helping students learn to exercise their civic responsibilities is one of the great pleasures for teachers.”
