It was a busy day at the polls for some young voters. The line was almost out the door at College Park Elementary School. The event was part of New Hanover County Schools' Kids Voting Program. Students from kindergarten to fifth grade stuffed the ballot box as part of a lesson on the importance of voting. While most of the polling sites are moving to electronic voting, the elementary schools chose a less technical balloting system. ”We had the pictures of the presidents, and we had these little boxes beside them, and we put a check,” said Sophie Presnell. Early exit polls showed Obama leading at College Park Elementary. If you want the official tally, you're going to have to wait. Schools will not release their final results until Election Day on November 4th.
