Online Voting – Freshman Elections
Vote Thursday - Friday, Aug 29-30
The Mountain View Student Counsel is going to be trying something a bit different this year. Our student government has partnered with a company that specializes in secure online elections. No more scantrons (paper ballots). Students will be able to vote from virtually any device connected to the internet. Students will log in using their unique identifiers and will be able to vote only in those races for which they qualify. For example, only freshmen will be able to vote for freshmen.
Voting for the freshmen election will open at 6:00 AM on Thursday the 29th and close at 2:00 PM on Friday the 30th.To Vote students can either click on a "vote now" link that will be on the MVHS homepage, scan QR codes that will be in the halls, or even download the "Vote 4 Schools" app from iTunes or the Google Play Store. More details will be in the instructional video that will be broadcast on Thursday, August 29th, during 1st period
Students can vote before school, at lunch, passing periods, after school, even at home. One side of Media Center computers has been reserved for voting during each lunch during both days of elections.
In order to facilitate the online election event, election officials will be showing a video to showcase the freshmen that are running for office. At the end of the candidate video, student counsel will have a short video tutorial on how to vote.

Can Food Drive
Sponsored by FBLA and the Business and Technology Department
As the holiday season nears, we begin to realize that not every family can afford to feed themselves. Not everyone has the basic necessities that we take for granted everyday-especially food.
The students from Business and Technology Department of Mountain View have organized a canned food drive, in which all non-perishable, bulk food, and donations collected shall be sent to the United Food Bank here in Mesa.
The canned food drive will run through November 14 to November 27, the day before Thanksgiving.
FBLA students will be collecting donations from the business classes or donations can be brought to room 111 before the deadline occurs so that all donations can be sent to the food to the United Food Bank on time.
