When voters across the nation hit the polls to vote for presidential front-runners Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, the next generation of voters will be following their lead with a mock election at a public elementary school in San Francisco.

Students at San Francisco Public Montessori are expected to line up at a fake polling place and cast their votes for president next Tuesday, according to a statement from the San Francisco Unified School District.

The booth will be private and complete with a practice ballot that students can mark.

After students get out the vote, school officials will hand out “Just Voted” stickers and count up the ballots.

The results will be reported ahead of the official tally later that night.

The mock election is the conclusion of several weeks of discussion around the election at SF Public Montessori.
