MINERAL SPRINGS – Preschool students at Mineral Springs United Methodist Church experienced voting first hand on Nov. 6.
First, they helped teachers make candidates by turning mini pumpkins into turkeys. The turkey pumpkin candidates were displayed outside the “Mineral Springs Preschool Future Voter Precinct” for inspection.
On Election Day, “future voters” cast their ballots for their favorite turkey. “Voters” proudly wore their voting stickers home. The four-year classes used their counting skills to count the ballots.
Mr. Purple Headed Feathertail Gobbler won the election.
