In the run-up to the US elections, we teamed up with some kids in the town of Culpeper in the State of Virginia to send us their webcam diaries about the latest goings on in the presidential race.

There were just a few days to go when our 'Pres Packers' sent their last diaries, telling us how they thought the election was going and who was the favourite to win...
