The Michigan Center for Civic Education is proud to be partnering with Michigan Government Television (MGTV) for the 2012 MGTV Mock Election Project. This is a great way to engage young people in the November elections, and it’s free. Nothing gets kids more interested in voting than letting them vote.
Two years have flown by and election time is just around the corner. Planning is underway for the 2012 MGTV (Michigan Government Television) Mock Election. The project engages students in voting online for the President, U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress, Michigan House of Representatives, Michigan Supreme Court and state ballot proposals (it is optional to vote in some, all or none of the Michigan races).
