Students get their chance to vote

November 1, 2010

LAKEVILLE — Cell phone use in class is typically a no-no, but the rule is being temporarily relaxed at LaVille Jr./Sr. High School.
At the beginning of the school year, Union-North Technology Director Mike Sumpter set up a teachers’ poll in which votes were cast via cell phone through www.polleverywhere.com. To get LaVille students involved in the election process, the same setup is being used so they can vote on the Joe Donnelly/Jackie Walorski Congressional and Dan Coats/Brad Ellsworth Senate races. The results will show who would win if the student body was the total electorate.
