Madawaska Middle/High School ran their mock election on October 25th.  Mr. Colin Jandreau helped run the event which had students voting on the three major races as well as the six ballot referendum questions.  Hillary Clinton, Bruce Poliquin, and Troy Jackson were the winners, as were the Yes votes on referendum questions 4 and 5, while No votes took questions 1, 2, and 3.  Question #6 on the bond for highways, bridges, and other facilities ended in a 71-71 vote tie.
