Greece, N.Y. - Abby Katchel, 17, isn't old enough to vote, but knows all about the political process.
She and other history students will be locked in the library at Greece Arcadia High School on Election Night. They will use computers, and smartboards to follow election returns and monitor coverage by national and local media.
The library will be transformed into a "war room." Teachers, administrators and school board members are also invited to take part.
Students will also analyze media bias and the impact social media has on the election.
They spent Monday in class preparing for their Election Night Lock-in.
Though most are not old enough to vote in the actual election, they will cast ballots during their lock-in, to learn how the process works.
Senior David Rapp is 18 and will be voting for the first time Tuesday. He has already made up his mind about a presidential candidate. Rapp says unemployment and the economy are the most important issues to him. He tells us: "I want whoever I vote for, to fix it."
History Teacher Mark Schultz says the more students know about politics, the more engaged in the process they will be. The hope is they will learn that while politics can be nasty and unpredictable, elections do matter and your vote does count.
One hundred students will take part in the lock-in Tuesday from 7 p.m. -10 p.m.
