Sample ballots and voters' guides
This year the Mock Election offers both a short ballot and a long ballot. The short
ballot, recommended for younger students, asks students to decide on Initiative
1240 concerning charter schools, President and Governor. The long ballot adds Initiative
502 concerning marijuana and Referendum 74 concerning same-sex marriage. These issues
are more complex and can be controversial; therefore, we recommend the long ballot
for older students.
