Kirkland Scout Pack 567 holds mock election to remind people to vote

The Lion, Tiger and Wolf dens of Cub Scout Pack 567 in Kirkland learned about the importance of voting this week.

The groups held a candy election and to decide whether Grape Nerds or Sweetarts were the better candy.

Grape Nerds won.

But then scouts learned that only 21 percent of registered voters voted in the last election and when only half the boys voted, the outcome of the mock election was completely overturned with Sweetarts winning.

According to a release, this exercise has led the scouts to remind voters to return their ballots by Nov. 7 and make their voices heard.
