Before this year, Ashland High School always operated under the same system of electing a homecoming King and Queen. At a mandatory homecoming assembly, the nominees for King and Queen would all do a skit. After all the skits, the student body would vote for the King, but not for the Queen. The King would then be announced with the Queen announced later, during the football game.

This year, the system is was changed up. As usual, there were a few rounds of voting until there were the top 5 nominees for both Homecoming King and Queen. However, this year, the last round of voting for both the King and the Queen took place at the assembly. After the skits were over, everyone had voted for the last time. The King and Queen will be formally announced at half-time at the Homecoming football game. If successful, this new system will allow voters to get a better sense of who, exactly, they are voting for, making Ashland’s homecoming much less confusing.
