Students getting a chance to vote on Election Day

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- They may not be old enough to cast a ballot yet but Hoosier kids will have a chance to cast their ballots for president this November.

The program is part of the Indiana Kids' Election.

The Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett visited South Bend to talk to kids about the election process.

Bennett reminded students voting is a civic duty.

"You're going to decide who best represents you as a voter of this state," Bennett said. "In my opinion, as your civic duty to vote, it is your responsibility to become as informed voter."

The student mock elections will be held across Indiana on Election Day.

The elections are sponsored by the Indiana State Bar Association, the Indiana Secretary of State, and the State Department of Education.
