Student tabulators worked throughout the day Tuesday counting votes for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton casted by their classmates at The Brook Hill Lower School.

Students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade learned about elections and the voting process through a mock vote for United States president in the library.

"We are helping them understand the importance of voting and elections. It's a right and a responsibility," librarian Ila England said.

Each student brought a handmade voter registration card, had it checked, received their ballot with instructions, visited a voting booth, then placed their ballots in a voting box.

By the end of the school day students will know the results of the mock election.
