The Florida Student Mock Election is open to all K-12 students in Florida.
Go to the homepage to create an account. When you create an account, you will be asked for the total number of students you teach. Unique student voter ID numbers will be generated for the total number of students you entered upon registration.
What information is required to register?
When you register, you will be asked for the total number of students that will participate. This number will automatically generate unique student voter ID numbers for each student. You can print and divide the unique student voter ID numbers by classes. At this time, voting results cannot be divided by classes but will instead give grand totals.
The ballot has been generated to align with the congressional contest in the "Florida Joint Center for Citizenship's Candidates & Elections Lesson Plan" aligned to SS.7.C.2.9 and SS.7.C.2.7. Students will choose one of three candidates in a mock congressional contest.
Under the ballot section of the website, you can add and remove questions by dragging and dropping them into the appropriate sections. You may also add your own custom questions which will automatically be added to the bottom of your ballot. Rearrange your questions by dragging them up or down.
To vote, each student needs a unique voter ID number. When students are ready to vote, click on "Vote Now" on the homepage and students will be prompted to enter their unique number.
After registering as a teacher on the Mock Election site your student numbers will be automatically generated when you visit the student numbers page. This page will preview all the generated numbers and whether that number has voted yet. You will also be able to generate a printable sheet with the numbers, or add more numbers if necessary.
Teachers will be able to login and view which of the student numbers have/have not voted. There will not be a place on the site to match student names with student numbers. If you are interested in correlating numbers with specific students, you will need to create your own separate roster.
After paper voting is completed you may log into the Mock Election site and enter the total results of your ballot.
Teachers can view the results for their registered students at any time during and after their voting time period.
