Students began casting their online vote for president on Monday, Oct. 22, and will continue through Wednesday, Oct. 31. The student votes will be compiled by the Secretary of State’s Office and revealed during a Celebration Event on Nov. 1 at Louisiana’s Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
“My hope is that the Mock Election will inspire students to be lifelong voters, increasing voter turnout for future generations,” said Secretary Schedler. “I encourage students to get involved in this hands-on learning experience under the guidance of their parents and educators.”
There are 136 schools within the parishes listed below that have students who have cast a total of 21,795 votes as of Oct. 25:
Acadia, Allen, Ascension, Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Calcasieu, Cameron, Concordia, DeSoto, East Baton Rouge, Evangeline, Grant, Iberia, Iberville, Jefferson, Jefferson Davis, LaSalle, Lafayette, Lafourche, Lincoln, Livingston, Morehouse, Orleans, Ouachita, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, Rapides, Sabine, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Vermilion, Webster and West Feliciana.
