Cleveland Heights High School Students will cast their votes in a few races this Thursday, Oct. 18 as part of a Mock Election organized by the League of Women Voters.
The project, Engaging a New Generation of Voters: Mock Elections for High School Students, is meant to shed light on the voting process for the soon-to-be voters. Heights High is one of four area schools to participate in five-year-old League of Women Voters program. This year, Shaw, Magnificat and St. Edward high schools are also involved.
Students will focus on the U.S. President, U.S. Senate (Ohio) and Cuyahoga County Council District 2 and District 10 races, and also register and review a voters' guide. Students then participate in a precinct ballot election conducted by volunteer precinct workers overseen by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
The Mock Elections for Heights High will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thursday.
