After learning about the candidates and their stance on different issues, the students were then able to vote for their preferred candidates.
Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate created this experience to inspire civic engagement among youths.
According to Secretary Paul Pate, President Donald Trump and Andrew Yang are currently the top vote-getters among the presidential candidates included on the Youth Straw Poll.
