Student Vote Campaign Update

It’s back to school for Canadian elementary and secondary students and, with the federal election campaign at its midway point, Student Vote 2015 is shifting into high gear.

Our distribution centre began preparations last month and the first round of shipments left the warehouse last week. Our team has already packaged 12,000 ballot boxes, 12,000 voting screens, 35,000 posters, 12,750 activity resources, 12,750 campaign guides, 4,250 election manuals and tens of thousands of seals.

Now with our full operations up and running, interested schools can expect their package, tailored to their size and the level and language requested, to be shipped out within two business days of their registration.

Last week we surpassed our 2011 federal registration statistics and we expect this election to be our best Student Vote program yet!

Over 5,000 elementary and high schools have signed up from across the country. During National Student Vote Week (October 13-16), as many as 700,000 students are expected to cast a ballot.

This will also be our widest reaching federal Student Vote program to date, with schools registered from all 338 ridings. Participation stretches from coast to coast to coast, with schools including Netsilik School in Taloyoak, Nunavut, Kyuquot School on Vancouver Island and Beaconsfield Junior High School in St. John’s, NL, with more than four thousand others in between.

You can view all registered schools on our interactive map.

This election is shaping up to be an exciting one. Keep an eye out for more updates.
