Students Cast Their Vote for President
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
Last week, we launched Edmodo Votes as a way for your students to participate in this year’s election. We asked Edmodo educators to poll their students, in advance of election day, on who they think should be our next president.
Today, the results are in! Votes have been tallied and the following shows the breakdown of how students would vote in this year’s election*:
Will students’ opinions match the results of the election? We’ll have to wait and see tomorrow.

In addition to the Edmodo Votes initiative we also took a look at how students were talking about key election issues. The following is a breakdown of what issues were being talked about most on Edmodo by both teachers and students.
Big thanks to everyone who participated in Edmodo Votes! We were overwhelmed by the number of responses and excited to see so many educators engaging their students around the democratic process, civic responsibility, and what it means to be a well-informed citizen.
