Students receive special instruction in parliamentary procedure and organize themselves into two mythical political parties. They then campaign, hold rallies, debate and ultimately vote to elect city, county and state officials.
Once elected to office, delegates are sworn in and perform their prescribed duties.
Citizens not elected to office are given appointments and visit the offices of their elected or appointed counterparts in actual state, county and city government.
