Most schools around the country have standard student government elections. They decide to run for a position, give a speech, display posters and give out gear. Finally, it’s time for voting. Of course, if they win the majority vote, they get elected.

Yet at CMS, elections are very different. In fact, CMS doesn’t even have elections. Our school government is simple. Students that want to apply to student council,  fill out a packet at the end of the previous school year. If they want to run for a higher role such as president or secretary, they circle that role on the packet. It then goes to Mrs. Bree and her officers, who decide who is assigned which part. When students attend high school and run for student council, they win by popular vote. Before Mrs. Bree switched it to packets, the school elections were by popular vote.
