Republicans made a clean sweep during an "election" held at Canton Middle School.
Not surprisingly the strongest winners were Republican state representative and state senate candidates Tim LeGeyt and Kevin Witkos, both of whom have strong connections to the school system.
The students also voted in favor of the town bonding for a track, field and parking lot improvement project but rejected partial replacement of roofs at all three schools and the community center.
Social Studies teacher Joe Casorio spearheaded the mock election and said students have discussed the subject since school started in the fall.
"It's our responsibility to let the kids know what's going on and give them the opportunity to create some conversation at home," he said.
Casorio said the votes would likely mirror the town's.
"I think that's the way Canton will vote," he said.
Even if that's the case, the lessons will not be over and classes will talk about the way Canton voted in contrast to other parts of the country, he said.
