May Moore Elementary School held a special election for students to vote for their favorite author. Students launched campaigns for candidates Eric Carle and Cynthia Rylant and created election videos using state-of-the-art multimedia technology. They learned the techniques of filming on a green screen, a blank backdrop that allows the videographer post-production to superimpose a scene on the background so that it looks like students are posed in various virtual locations.

Prior to voting, students received voter registration cards complete with their personal information needed for voting. They entered one of four private voting booths equipped with computers and were led through the proper voting process. Following voting, students visited three tables, where they received a certificate, bookmark and stickers for participating in the democratic process.
