RICHMOND — A real voting machine counted students’ yays and nays in a school-wide mock election at Richmond Elementary on Monday. Town Administrator Rob Rock and Town Clerk Tracy Nelson oversaw the voting and helped pre-K through fourth grade students figure out how the ballots fit into the machine’s slot.
The ballot “question” was whether Chariho should switch to a year-round school schedule or stick to summers off.
Before the event, Richmond Elementary School Principal Sharon Martin said that forming an opinion based on evidence was an important part of the school’s curriculum.
