The purpose of the mock election is to teach students – through experience-based education – about the elections process and the importance of voting.
Oregon’s three-time national award-winning program is coordinated by the League of Women Voters and championed by the Oregon Secretary of State and the Oregon Department of Education.
Participation is free and includes curriculum materials that are aligned with Oregon Social Studies Standards.
The Oregon Student Mock Election is affiliated with the My Voice National Student Mock Election.
