More than 37,000 Kentucky students participated in the mock election this year.
Here are the results:
- Rand Paul 52.2% at 19,468 votes
- Jack Conway 47.8% at 17,810 votes
“It is essential that students become acclimated to the democratic process, and there is no better way than for them to participate in the process themselves,” said Secretary of State Trey Grayson. “We hope that this will begin a lifelong commitment to voting among these young people.”
Throughout the last seven years of the project, students have voted for the winning candidate 83% of the time.
