Interest in the Presidential Election is not limited to actual voters, even the students at Bend High have an avid interest.

 

Bend High government teacher Doug Brown says his students watched the debates and have had some very thoughtful questions about them. "Yes, the kids have been interested a lot more in the electoral process than necessarily the candidate themselves. Although they've shown some interest in the national level and not on the local races, but they're curious about the candidates and they seem to have spent some time on their own, some of them, investigating what the two candidates stand for, they've gone to the web sites and things like that."

 

Brown says they did grasp the difference between the Electoral College and the popular vote.

 

Brown held a mock Presidential Election in all of his classes and the result has President Obama beating Mitt Romney 112 to 79 votes.
