North Bend's Twin Falls Middle School students to take part in mock election

As Washington voters cast ballots in the 2013 General Election, thousands of students in grades K-12 will get their chance to vote in the Washington state Mock Election.

In the Valley, eighth grade students at Twin Falls Middle School will be taking part.

Sponsored by the Office of Secretary of State, the mock election is a nonpartisan, educational program that teaches students to be informed voters. Taking part in the mock election is free and open to all Washington K-12 students, whether they attend private, public or tribal school or are homeschooled. Voting takes place online, starting Oct. 28 at 9 a.m. and ending Nov. 1 at 1 p.m.
