The Office of the Secretary of State would like to thank all the teachers and students who participated in the Project V.O.T.E. 2008 Student Mock Election. This years’ mock election was an unprecedented success, with over 1 million students participating in the democratic process! Students, we hope that you enjoyed your mock election experience and that when you become of voting age, that you will not only register, but more importantly, that you will vote--you have a voice, through the ballot box. And teachers, thank you for giving your students the opportunity to learn first-hand about the most fundamental right as a citizen, the power of the vote!

All questions and comments can be submitted to the Project V.O.T.E. Team.
