NOW LET’S HEAR WHY IT WAS SUCH A CLOSE POLL – AS WE TAKE A PEEK INSIDE OUR INBOX:
[INBOX]

KATHRYN FROM MUNROE ELEMENTARY WRITES: I VOTED YES ON THE POLL BECAUSE I THINK THAT AFTER ALL THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION THAT THESE CANDIDATES HAVE DONE THEY DESERVE THE EXACT VOTE COUNT!
MILENKA

MILENKA FROM ROCK CREEK ELEMENTARY DISAGREED, SAYING: I VOTED NO IN THIS WEEK’S POLL. IF THERE WAS A MISTAKE IN THE VOTE COUNTS, THE MISTAKE WOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN ACCOUNTED FOR AND FIXED. TRUMP HAS ALREADY STARTED GETTING EVERYTHING READY FOR WHEN HE BECOMES THE PRESIDENT.

SCARLETT FROM MARYLAND ELEMENTARY ALSO RESPONDED NO:
ON THIS WEEK’S POLL QUESTION, I ANSWERED NO. THE VOTES HAVE ALREADY BEEN COUNTED, AND PEOPLE SHOULD ACCEPT THAT DECISION HAS BEEN MADE, AND WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT.

ELIAS FROM AYER ELEMENTARY USES SOME LOGIC THAT WE CAN’T ARGUE WITH:
I VOTED YES BECAUSE WHEN I'M AT SCHOOL AND I NEED TO COUNT I ALWAYS MESS UP AT LEAST 1 TIME.

AND, FINALLY, MRS. WILSON SENT US THIS REPORT FROM HER 4TH GRADE CLASS AT OLD TRAIL SCHOOL:
OUT OF 18 4TH GRADE STUDENTS, 13 SAID YES, COUNT THEM AGAIN AND 5 SAID NO, DON'T DO IT. MRS. WILSON’S CLASS TOLD US THAT IF THERE IS A CLOSE RACE AND YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO WINS, YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED SOMEONE, AND YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL FOR VOTES TO BE ACCURATE.

THANKS TO MRS. WILSON’S CLASS FOR YOUR THOUGHTFUL RESPONSE, AND THANKS ALSO TO KATHRYN, MILENKA, SCARLETT, AND ELIAS FOR YOUR PERSUASIVE LETTERS.
