Pine View Middle School to Choose U.S. Senator, Florida Governor

Who: Pine View Middle School students

What: Mock Election

When: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, November 2

Where: Pine View Middle School, 5334 Parkway Blvd., Land O' Lakes

Why: To teach civic responsibility to students and give them experience voting in an election that most probably have been exposed to through television advertisements and campaign signs around the community.

How: Voting booths will be set up in various classrooms. The ballot will consist of two statewide races:
United States Senate, featuring Governor Rick Scott and incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson; and Florida Governor, featuring former Congressman Ron DeSantis, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, and Darcy Richardson.

Students will be given ‘I Voted’ stickers after participating.
