Political Affairs Club Sponsors Student Vote
November 6, 2018
The Cretin-Derham Hall Political Affairs Club (PAC), with the assistance of U.S. History classmates, sponsored a mock vote on Election Day, 2018. Students marked their ballots for two U.S. Senators and the Governor of Minnesota.
Students in all grades were able to follow along with the normal voting process as they visited “the polls” today — including a voter registration line, completing the ballot, and placing the completed ballot in the box. Students even received "I Voted" stickers.
CDH has held a mock election for every presidential election year since the mid-1980s. This is the first time the school has hosted a mock midterm election.
The PAC meets weekly during lunch. Moderator Mr. Boisclair invites all junior and senior students to join them for spirited discussions and debates.
