The elections are open to middle and high schools and will be on Nov. 1. The press release said this would mark the end of Civics Month in Kentucky and that the deadline to register is Oct. 28.
Mangels said that when he heard about it, he wanted the school to participate. He said, though, than when he asked a teacher to call about it, she was told that she had missed the deadline. After The Cadiz Record asked him about it, though, Mangels said he would still love to get the school involved if he can get what appeared to be a misunderstanding cleared up.
“I think it would be great,” Mangels said Monday afternoon. “What better way to teach our kids about democracy?”
