(Lansing, Michigan)—Michigan Government Television (MGTV) would like to announce the results of the
MGTV Michigan Student Mock Election. The final online voting results for the statewide races for
Michigan House of Representative, Michigan Supreme Court and 6 ballot proposals for the student mock
election are available now on MGTV’s website http://www.mgtv.org/education/mock-election-results/.
***It is notable that in the student mock election, all 6 state ballot proposals passed and the three top vote
getters in the Michigan Supreme Court race were Stephen Markman, Bridget Mary McCormack and Shelia
Johnson. The Michigan House race results can be found online at the above link.
The results for Michigan and nationwide for president, U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress will not be released
until late tonight November 6th or tomorrow November 7th . This is due to our partner’s, My Voice National
Student Mock Election, decision to extend the national voting deadline by 5 days (to Nov. 6th at 6:00p.m.
EST) to accommodate schools on the East Coast affected by Hurricane Sandy. Michigan results for the
national races will be compiled with all 50 states and will be available at
Acting Executive Director, Michelle Webb said, “There were over 55,000 students and approximately 250
schools registered to vote in the student mock election in Michigan. Although not all of those registered
actually voted, we are pleased with the participation that we received, particularly since this is only the
second year that MGTV has coordinated the statewide event.”
