ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some girls got an election lesson in Albany on Thursday afternoon.

Girls Inc. held a mock election.

Girls lined up to fill out their presidential ballots.

The organization kicked off the She Votes campaign last month to educate the girls about the importance of voting and civic engagement.

The girls felt prepared to vote.

I look up Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump speeches and what they said and I looked up the other ballots so I can know which one do I want to vote for," said Ja'Shanti Bailey.

You would want a wise a trustworthy leader," said Lakayla Thomas.

Both of those young voters chose Hilary Clinton.
