Students at Lynnfield's two elementary schools got an early jump on voting Monday by casting ballots in a mock presidential election.
If the election results suggest one thing about the real deal on Tuesday, it's that we can expect a close one. At Huckleberry Hill Elementary School, the kids backed Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, 207-158. Over at Summer Street Elementary School however, they went for Romney over Obama by a 219-194 margin. Looking back to the 2008 election, John McCain was reportedly the favorite of Lynnfield schoolchildren.
