River Ridge High School students voted for student elections using real electronic voting systems thanks to a hands-on lesson supported by the Cherokee County Board of Elections and Registration.

Teacher Joy Clarkston worked with Anne Dover and Jim Fleisher from the Board of Elections so students could vote for Student Advisory Board and Homecoming Court during their lunches using the same machines they one day soon will use to vote for local, state and national government elections.
