The purpose of holding a mock election is to energize all eligible residents to vote and to give new voters practice in a simulated voting experience. The Voter Education, Registration, and Action (VERA) website has the resources to make it easy. You can also view live mock election results.
The VERA campaign of 2016 is a nonpartisan effort designed for adult learners and program staff in the New England states. Its goal is to educate adult learners about voting and current election issues and to mobilize them to vote in the 2016 elections. VERA is sponsored by the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC) at World Education and funded through the New England states, including Massachusetts.
