WILDWOOD -- The Glenwood Avenue Elementary School's Student Council, under the guidance of teacher Michael Menszak, hosted a presidential election.   A polling center was established, complete with a voting booth.  Students from 1st to 5th grades cast their ballot for either President Obama or Mitt Romney.

Obama won with 84 percent to Romney's 16 percent of the votes, according to school officials.

“Cheers rang out in classrooms when the winner was announced,” reads a statement from the school.
