Members of the Mexico High School junior class voted for the next president of the United States in a mock election held on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016, Republican nominee Donald Trump took the election by a mere 16 votes. Students spent an hour listening to the candidates, portrayed by juniors Michael Stremke and Emma Chedwick, debate the issues in a mock debate moderated by Morghan Rowe and officiated by Baylee Alarcon. Tense moments including several bouts of name-calling and straying off topic marked the debate which lasted approximately an hour and included an open question session. The debate and election were organized by the AP government classes under the instruction of Mr. Garry Hagedorn of the social studies department. Watch the debate below.
