Obama vs. Ice Cream

It's not voter registration fraud. New Mexico children have been casting ballots for their presidential pick since October. Every Child Matters in New Mexico teamed up with the Bernalillo County Clerk's office to offer those under the legal voting age a chance to voice their preference for the next White House occupant.

At various early voting locations in Alamogordo, Ruidoso, Roswell, Lordsburg, Deming and throughout Bernalillo County, kids voted in their own special election while parents participated in the real McCoy. The kids-only ballot included all six presidential nominees (Obama, McCain, McKinney, Nader, Baldwin and Barr—try saying that five times fast) as well as a trio of ice cream flavors (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry).

With four ballot boxes still to be counted as of Monday, Nov. 3, at 6 p.m., here are the results:

President

Obama: 927 votes

McCain: 360 votes

McKinney: 3 votes

Baldwin: 2 votes

Nader: 2 votes

Barr: 1 vote

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor

Chocolate: 387 votes

Strawberry: 307 votes

Vanilla: 275 votes

Check back for a final tally, which will be posted here as soon as Every Child Matters releases the results.
