Student Vote Canada: Register Now!
The federal election is now less than four months away and excitement continues to build across the country.
This October, elementary and high school students across the country will have an opportunity to cast their own ballots as part of Student Vote Canada.
CIVIX is organizing the federal Student Vote parallel election and students will learn about government and the electoral process, research the parties, platforms and issues, and participate in an authentic vote for the official election candidates.
Although the school year is coming to an end, there is still time to register.
Schools can sign up now at http://studentvote.ca/federal_registration/ or by calling our team toll-free at 1-866-488-8775.
This is the fifth federal Student Vote project and more than 2,500 schools have already signed up from 315 ridings across the country.
We anticipate that 700,000 students will cast a Student Vote ballot this October. In the last federal election, 563,000 students cast ballots from 3,750 schools in 301 ridings.
Student Vote Canada is being delivered in partnership with Elections Canada, Canada’s national electoral agency.
Registered schools receive educational resources, posters, riding maps, ballots and ballot boxes free of charge, and all materials are available in both official languages. A project website will provide access to videos and additional resources. Registering now will ensure that your resource package is distributed at the beginning of the school year.
