The votes are in—it's a Bad Kitty landslide!

It's time to elect a new president of the Neighborhood Cat Coalition! Who will win the election? The candidate chosen by the kitties on the right side of the street or the candidate chosen by the kitties on the left side of the street? When election time rolls around, one candidate (guess who?) will discover that she never bothered to register to vote and the entire election will be decided by a surprise, last minute absentee ballot sent by Old Kitty.

Bad Kitty for President: Host Your Own Mock Election!

Curious how the Neighborhood Cat Coalition keeps their checks and balances?

Host your own mock election at school or home today. Here's all the stuff you'll need for a smooth-sailing election. Just don't let Bad Kitty into the ballot box!

Official Petitions
Have a school or community official encourage students to participate in the election by signing up as candidates for specific positions.

Campaign Speeches
Whether you are running for class president or student council member, it is always a great idea to hold an assembly where all of the candidates talk about their platform and ideas. They should discuss issues that might have an effect on the student experience.

Election Ballot
Have everyone who is interested in the election cast their vote individually and privately. Create a box with a small slit for the ballots. The ballots could look like this:
I give my vote to:
My Write In Candidate is:
Tallying Ballots
Once the voting has closed, assign a group of students to count all of the votes. Use a chalkboard, a white board, or even a computer chart to make sure every vote is counted, and every voice is heard. Once all of the votes have been counted, you can announce the winner!
