Scholastic Student Vote

Press Release: Students Elect President Obama in 2012 Scholastic Student Vote

Nearly a quarter of a million students nationwide cast their vote for president in the 2012 Scholastic Student Vote. This is the 19th time Scholastic has held the student mock election. Since it launched in 1940 the outcome has mirrored that of the general election in every contest but two (in 1948 when students chose Thomas E. Dewey over Harry S. Truman and in 1960 when more students voted for Richard M. Nixon than John F. Kennedy).
