make democracy come alive for young people while an exciting election season is
October 28, California’s high school and middle school students will host a mock election and vote to tell
the world who they want to be Governor, and make their voices heard on issues
important to them and their families. Once the votes are counted, they can
compare their choices to those of their peers around the state when the results
are posted on the Secretary of State’s website.
