MHS Students set to take part in the Maine Mock Election 2012 – this coming Tuesday, Oct. 30th. Thank you to Mr. Demott and the students from his Civics classes who have put a great deal of effort into setting up this event.
Along with the mock election itself, the class will be working with local registrars to register eligible students during the week and encourage students throughout the school to increase their knowledge of the issues at hand in this election.
For further information on the election or candidates some links were provided below.
