Students get the day off tomorrow for elections. That didn't stop one local high school from letting students vote today.
William Fleming High School in Roanoke held a mock election during lunch. Each student, freshman through senior, got a chance to cast a ballot with the same candidates and proposed amendments voters will see tomorrow.
Students and teachers told us it was a good way to put what they learn in the classroom into action.
"Our kids are really engaged in it. And we open it up to all the students to have a chance to vote for the ones who can't vote in the regular election," said Mike Souma, a Government and History teacher.
Tyler Ambrose is a student, he said, "I think it's good practice. And it helps us get our feet wet to help us vote and be prepared for the next election."
Government and History teachers organized the mock election, something they also did four years ago.
