Long line of older children.

What's with all this?

I drove downtown today (Portland) and saw at least half a dozen large groups of children of all ages, anywhere from little kids to teenagers in long lines roaming the streets of Downtown Portland. It was mid-afternoon.

Why weren't they in school? It's Tuesday, not Saturday. It's not a National Holiday.

What's up with that?

Anybody know?

They should have been in class receiving an education. What "field trip" would teach them about the "voting process"? That's something they would learn more about in class. Maybe they were homeless children.

Maybe it was some type of field trip to educate them about the voting process...letting them see first hand? I didn't hear anything, so that's just a guess.
