Kids at Wilson Middle School in Moline took to the polls today voting for who they want to be their next president.
"I voted for Obama, I like him, he's pretty good," said Mckensie Fortner, a 7th grader.
Teacher Tasha Weimers is the mastermind behind the operation.
Giving students as real a voting experience as possible
"We thought about handing them the ballots in the classroom, and we're like no, let's make them come out of their rooms, come down here, go through the whole gamut, adults don't get it handed to them or sent to them, said Weimers.
Her students students rotated jobs all day.
"My job here in this period is passing out ballots," said Chris Martinez, a 6th grader.
Throughout the day, every class in the school voted.
"You just got a ballot and just marked who you wanted Barack Obama or Romney," said Jacob Rossmiller, a 7th grader.
Weimers said she'll be happy no matter what the outcome is.
"It's been a lot of fun, it's been a lot of work," she said.
Students won't know the result of their election until Monday.
They're excited to compare the actual results with their prediction.
