Galt High School students cast their votes
Eddie Esqueda, a senior at Galt High School, looks over a sample ballot before casting his vote during a mock election at the school on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012. The Sacramento County Office of Elections organized the mock election with Galt High School and 10 other Sacramento County schools to teach students the importance of voting and to encourage students of legal age to register. The students cast their votes for the presidential, congressional and senate elections as well as several propositions. Liberty Ranch will be participating in the mock election on Oct. 22.
