At Melzer School in Morton Grove, students had to have their ID checked by a "poll worker," were handed a ballot, got to go into a voting booth and then dropped their choices into a colorful, red, white and blue ballot box.
The balloting is the culmination of teachers' lessons about voting and elections in the U.S., said Kathy Ruck, a librarian at the elementary school.

"All the teachers in grades one through six have been working with the kids," she said.
Teachers in the primary grades taught about what voting is, she explained; those in fourth grade went into more detail about how the voting process works, how to register to vote and the qualifications of the candidates.
In fifth and sixth grades, teachers went into even greater detail.
All of the students received an "I Voted" sticker.
After students exercised their rights to vote, Principal Shawn Schleizer released the results: 204 for Obama, 81 for Romney.
