Youth Leadership Initiative, founded by the University of Virginia Center for Politics, conducts the largest secure, student-only, online mock election in the nation, using electronic ballots tailored to each student’s home legislative district. WEB Tutorial will be participating in the YLI National Mock Election on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. The YLI ballot will include races for United States President, TN seats to the U.S. House of Representatives, and the WEB Civics Mascot.
Participation is optional.
Students who wish to participate must register in advance to be eligible to vote. Voter registration takes place in person on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, during lunch at WEB and after the last class of the day. Members of the WEB Civics class will be available to assist with voter registration and to answer any questions about the WEB-specific ballot items.
Student information collected on the voter registration forms is used solely for the purposes of the Mock Election. The YLI ballots default to the student's US congressional district, based on the student's zip code as reported on the voter registration form.
