Vallejo Times-Herald: Benicia Middle School ‘voters’ pick Obama in landslide

By Lanz Christian Banes/Times-Herald staff writer

BENICIA – President Barack Obama handily crushed his opponent Tuesday – or at least, that’d be the case if Benicia middle school students could vote.

About 400 eighth-graders crammed into Benicia Middle School’s multipurpose room for an exercise in democracy as “delegates” from each state cast their votes in the electoral college.

“It helped us feel like we’re part of the rest of society,” said Zach Cherry, a 13-year-old and the delegate from South Carolina.
