James Elementary School students learned a little more about the voting process Nov. 6 as they lined up to cast their vote.

Third through sixth graders participated in the mock presidential election which featured a voting booth and official ballot box. One by one, students visited the voting booth and contemplated who would receive their vote.

Some students wrote in candidates while others stuck to the two front-runners.

Here are the results:

Barack Obama: 97 votes;
Mitt Romney: 12;
Other: 4;
Snoop Dog: 1;
Cheesecake: 1;
Taylor Swift: 1;
Taylor Lautner: 1.
