This election has two candidates that a lot of people don’t like, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Or there are three other candidates, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein or Evan Mcmullen. America has to choose one. Every student voted at Palombi. We had a mock election because kids can’t vote yet because ‘we’re not 18 yet.

Did you guys know that people have done early voting from October 24 through November 7. In order to be President you have got to  win the electoral college not the percentage. The candidate winning the electoral college and not the popular vote happened four times in history.  1824,1876,1888, and 2000. The rest of the elections the winning candidate won both the electoral college and the popular vote.
