My son who is a fifth grader did something similar. Apparently they had a school wide vote and I found out about it afterwards. My son said that under the names Romney and Obama, he drew a box with a check mark and next to it wrote in the name Ron Paul. I was totally impressed!
I'm curious to see if they actually count his vote. I'm not holding my breath but I'd feel slightly better about the world if they would just count his vote.
My daughter says she's going to do the same thing early this week.
Hopefully they will honor these kids votes. After all, the school is supposed to be demonstrating getting your voice heard in the voting process and why it's important to vote.
