WESTCHESTER, N.Y. – Students at a New York elementary school have correctly predicted every president since 1968.

According to NBC New York, children at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Westchester, N.Y., correctly predicted Richard Nixon would be president in 1968, and the school hasn’t been wrong on a presidential election since.

“Our whole staff is a little nervous,” Principal Patricia Moore told NBC New York. “We are a good predictor [of who will win the presidential election].”

After teachers explain the electoral process to the students, the students line up to vote.

Inside the booth, teachers assist the students with voting by instructing them to pull a lever in the direction of their choice, NBC New York reports.

This year, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote with 52 percent.
