Editorial: Why Romney is the ideal choice

BSGE Votes; Obama Prevails

On Monday, November 3rd BSGE students cast their ballot for the President of the United States. For many it was a first, for some seniors it was practice for  the next day.
The  mock election was sponsored by The BACC Rag. Students voted during their lunch period. At the booth the student would sign next to their name and then fill in the oval corresponding to the candidate of their choice.
This first time event helped students better grasp the significance of the  election. It gave students a chance to voice their opinions and opened many disscusions about the nature of politics and the responsibility of voting.
Obama won at the election BSGE too but by a much larger margin then the national election. Obama won 78% of the school’s vote. This is even higher than in New York City where Obama won by 62%.
