(WTNH) — High school students across Connecticut cast their ballot in this year’s mock election, and the results are in.

3,056 students voted across 48 school districts – all virtually.

Out of the 48 districts, 43 voted in majority for Joe Biden, three districts voted for President Donald Trump, and two districts had a tie.

The nonpartisan education program is held by the Lieutenant Governor’s office with the state Department of Education, and it hopes to encourage youth to vote once they are old enough to do so.
