The results for this year’s Washington State Mock Election are in, and Dino Rossi (R) is the winner. Of the more than 15,000 K-12 and home-schooled students who voted, 53 percent chose Rossi, compared to 47 for Sen. Patty Murray (D).
Not surprisingly, they also voted yes on ballot measure 1107, which would repeal the tax on candy and soda. Initiative 1098, a measure to impose a state income tax on high earners, passed among students in grades 6-12, but was rejected (in simplified format, obviously) by grades K-5.
Kids vote the darndest ways.
