Harrington Middle School students had the opportunity to cast a vote for New Jersey's US Senate and US House of Representatives seats in a mock election on November 5. The purpose of the activity was to educate students on the various steps of the voting process. Students completed voter registration papers and researched the candidates in their social studies classes. They signed-in at the polls and were assisted in voting electronically by members of the Student Council.

Mock Election results were released on Election Day:
With all Harrington students given the opportunity to vote after having researched the candidates in Social Studies classes, the results are: Andy Kim (D) 70% to Tom McArthur (R) 30% for the House seat. In the Senate race, Bob Hugin (R) won by only one vote against Bob Menendez (D) 50.056% to 49.944%.
