Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Senator Mike Enzi commended parents, students and organizers for their roles in the Wyoming Student Mock Election Day being held tomorrow.
"This project is good for students and good for our government," said Enzi. "It serves to educate students on the importance of taking a role in their government. An educated, voting public means better leaders who work closer with those they serve."
Enzi encouraged parents to get involved in the election process with their children and he asked schools who are not participating this year to consider it for the future.
"As a candidate two years ago, the significance of the student vote was not lost on me," said Enzi. "Students along with their parents can make a difference now and start a trend that will continue."
Enzi won the student mock election with more than 51 percent of the vote. He won the state general election with 54 percent of the vote.
According to Linda Kirkbride, state coordinator for the project, about 20,000 Wyoming students in more than 130 schools across the state are expected to participate in the election tomorrow. Results will be released tomorrow night.
