Gov: Mock General Election

The presidential nominees are Taylor Andrews and Cory Mathews. Each nominee will select a vice president. This might be a former candidate who will try to get his or her former supporters to vote for the nominee, a well-known member of the party, or just someone who will be an effective campaigner.

The remaining students are assigned to large and small states. During the campaigning session, the presidential and vice presidential nominees (and their campaign staff) will crisscross the nation to meet voters. Students represent states and are no longer members of a particular party; instead, they represent the voters of a particular state. Thus they can choose a candidate from either party based on their own beliefs about the campaign issues and which candidates would be better for the offices of president and vice president.
