Results from South Kitsap schools’ mock election

South Kitsap school students took part in a nationwide mock election this voting season to examine how millennials vote compared to the nation as a whole.

In Washington state, the majority of students voted for Hillary Clinton (57 percent), while 27 percent chose Donald Trump. Similarly, in the actual election Nov. 8, Washington voters largely favored Clinton 56 percent to 38 percent for Trump.

The election was hosted by Newsela, a teaching tool used by more than 10 million students in three-quarters of all U.S. schools. Almost 385,000 students voted in the election to choose between all four presidential candidates.
