New Student Voting System Implemented
Out with the old, in with the new...gone are the days of counting ballots by hand. South Pontotoc High School has implemented another new piece of technology...this one to enhance our election system. We will be using eduBallot, an online voting platform, for all of our elections this year. This will eliminate any potential miscounts and speed up the election process significantly. Students will be able to vote from anywhere they have Internet access. The system is secure, allowing each student to vote only once. Voting will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., similar to the voting process for public elections.
