Students in the middle school program cast their own ballots for two "unnamed" candidates.
Students at the School of the Incarnation in Gambrills had their own presidential election on Tuesday, casting ballots for two "mystery" candidates as part of a social studies lesson. Laura Pajerowski, the school's director of development, said the students in the middle school program cast their ballots during their lunch period for the "Orange" or "Yellow" candidate after reading each candidate's platform.
