UAPB history club hosts mock election

The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff History Club/Phi Alpha Theta held a mock presidential election at Oak Park Elementary School Friday. The results were Democrat Barack Obama, 157 votes, and Republican Challenger Mitt Romney, 3 votes.

The mock election is a part of the history club’s voter awareness drive, which also includes making presentations at churches and encouraging UAPB students to participate in the voting process.

“The history club believes it is crucial for everyone to get out and vote and to encourage their families and friends to be involved in the political process. People have died for that fundamental right,” a spokesman said.
