Jennifer J. Edwards, Supervisor of Elections, spoke to approximately 100 second graders participating in the Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida program at Tommie Barfield Elementary School on Marco Island Thursday afternoon. After participating in their own mock-election for Mayor, students had the opportunity to meet with Edwards and learn how real elections occur at the county, state and federal levels. After hearing from Edwards, students were put
to the test on their elections knowledge through a trivia session quizzing them on various elections facts including the legal voting age, location of their precinct and Marco Island’s Early Voting location. Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida invited Edwards to speak to students For more information on the Junior Achievement Program, contact Anne Frazier at 239-225-2590.
