Student Vote Final Results
In total, 6,760 schools participated in Student Vote this election with 922,000 students casting a ballot, representing all 338 electoral districts.
With more than half of all Canadian schools participating, this is the most successful Student Vote program to date.
The final results are now available at www.studentvote.ca/the-results and display the national summary, provincial/territorial summaries, results by riding and individual school results.
The Student Vote results were also reviewed by the CBC’s Peter Mansbridge last week. If you didn’t see it, you can catch that clip here:
Like the results of the official election, students elected a Liberal majority government and a Conservative official opposition.
The Liberals, led by Justin Trudeau, took almost 38% of the popular vote among students and won 226 seats. In the official election, the Liberals won a slightly smaller majority of 184 seats and more than 39% of votes cast.
The Conservatives, led by Stephen Harper, formed the official opposition in Student Vote with 26% of the popular vote and 70 seats. By comparison, the Conservatives won 99 seats with 32% of the vote in the official election.
Students gave the NDP, led by Thomas Mulcair, nearly 20% of the popular vote and 40 seats. This is only four short of their total in the official election, where they also received 20% of votes cast.
Elizabeth May and the Green Party received 12% of the popular vote among students and won 4 seats. The party won a single seat in the official results with more than 3% of the vote.
The Bloc Quebecois, led by Gilles Duceppe failed to win a seat in the Student Vote, receiving less than 1% of all votes. In the official election, they won 10 seats with nearly 5% of votes cast.
