Lee County-- Lee County High School's homecoming election is a lesson in civics.

The students are using touch screen voting machines used in real political elections to cast their vote for homecoming queen. Lee County's Election Supervisor says it's good practice for these future voters.

Election Supervisor Veronica Johnson says, "They really take to it like fish to water and they've been really comfortable, they go in and actually have done just as great as our older voters if not better because they are more computer literate then some of the older people."

Today was the last opportunity for the students to pick their homecoming queen. The results will be announced at Friday night's football game.
