This year, we are participating along with over 200 high schools across the state in the FirstVoteNC program. This allows our students to participate in a state-wide mock election. Our ballot is based on our geographic location and reflects races across the nation, state, and county.After students cast their vote, they will have a chance to participate in an exit poll, which will allow us to compare and analyze data from East Burke, Burke County, and across the state.
I encourage you to allow your students to take advantage of this opportunity to cast their ballot. This would be a great homework assignment or warm-up activity on Thursday,, or during our half day .
To cast a ballot and participate in the exit polls, visit our precinct:
