Stars vs. Stripes

Mock Election
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Yesterday we held a mock election. Each member of the community was surveyed in advance to determine party placement and then assigned to both a party and a state delegation. We heard candidates make statements, debate one another, and then speak at their respective party conventions. We caucused and made signs and debated the views we heard. And finally, we voted and celebrated! Thanks to the history and fine arts departments for providing us all a way to experience democracy in action.
