John McCain should be president.
Approximately 300 of the JTES students took part in a mock election Tuesday morning at the school. Third-grade teacher Maggie Morlan spearheaded the election with help from volunteers.
"They came in and helped making the voting booths. It went very well," JTES Principal Jeff Fritz said.
Fritz said the school has always taken part in mock elections during an election year.
"It teaches the students about the election and our government," Fritz said. "That's real important for our school.
"The kids look forward to it. They think it's real neat."
McCain, the Republican candidate and Senator from Arizona, won the mock election Tuesday.
