In the midst of a very intense election, take a moment to cast your vote for something a little more lighthearted.
Here are the details from a friend of mine who is working at the *polls*:
As a way to teach the kids about elections, we are holding our own election:
M&M vs Peanut M&M
Their slogans are:
M&M -You can't go wrong with chocolate!
Peanut M&M -More is better!
If you would just take a minute to poll your family, and let us know
that would be great. Please put your state and #
of votes for each....only one vote per person please, we wouldn't want
any stuffing of the ballots! This way the kids can keep a tally for
each state, and when all votes are in we will color code our map - red
for M&M and blue for Peanut M&M (don't let the colors change your vote -
we are only talking about candy here people!) We will then assign a
proper # of for each state that participates according to
the # of people who vote in each state. Polls close at 6:00pm
tomorrow. Thanks for playing with us everyone, and we will let you know who
wins this important election!
So, go ahead. Tell us your favorites and your family's favorites in the comment box! Don't forget to leave your state's name so the final map is accurate!
Go peanut! (Who said that?)
Sorry, we are totally bipartisan on the Ark for this particular vote and I am not above campaigning outside the polling station.
***Feel free to ask others to participate. The more the merrier. Unless of course, they support plain M & Ms!***
