While their parents go to the polls Tuesday, some students at Bettendorf High School will also cast ballots. Juniors and Seniors will participate in this year's mock election sponsored by the Iowa Secretary of State's office.
Cathy Ahrens, a social studies and government teacher, says this is the first time the school has participated.
Bettendorf High School students will only vote on the statewide races in Iowa - US Senate and House, governor, secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, attorney general and secretary of agriculture.
Ahrens says ballots for the mock election will be available at a table in the school's commons area.
This year, 67 high schools in Iowa will participate in the Student Mock Election - besides Bettendorf the list includes Bellevue and Bellevue Marquette, and Central High School in Dewitt.
