Mock Election Project

MGTV Michigan Mock Election Project

Michigan Government TV (MGTV), in partnership with Leland Public Schools and the Michigan Center for Civic Education (MCCE), coordinated the MGTV Michigan Mock Election project this year.  For the 2012 election, students voted online for the President, U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress, Michigan House of Representatives, Michigan Supreme Court and state ballot proposals (it was optional to vote in some, all or none of the Michigan races).
