Yesterday, November 6th 2012, we had our own election in 5th grade class. 4th grade joined us in voting. Everyone had a job and it was a very fun experience. My job was being a counter/election judge with Edward and Dominic. We stood next to the ballot boxes and when they were done putting it in the box we gave them stickers that said "I voted," and we also gave them mints. When everyone was done voting Edward, Dominic, and I tallied up the votes. It was a great experience and I learned a lot.
I think it's important to vote because we need a leader of our country that is trustworthy and someone we can count on.
