JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Matthew Gilbert Middle School's Student Government will host a community party the night of the general election.

The school's Student Government Association will also collect ballots to decide who will fill their ranks.

Prior to the general election, students learned about the voting process, even selecting their party affiliation based on Democratic and Republican platforms presented during Social Studies classes.

The election party will feature a menu of grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soda, apple pie and ice cream.

The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Matthew Gilbert Middle School is located at 1424 Franklin St.
