Registered schools will receive a Student Vote Election Manual, ballot boxes, voting screens and ballots.

The Student Vote Election Manual is intended to help guide you through Student Vote Day. You will find suggestions on how to operate the parallel election within your school and guidelines for reporting your results.

If you are interested in voting online, please contact the CIVIX team to discuss the options available.

To adapt to policies and protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have focused on two key models for organizing the voting process. However, please use your best judgment and consult with your school administration to determine an approach that will work best for your school while adhering to the most up-to-date public health guidelines.

Submitting Your Results

Please ensure you report your results by 5:00 p.m. local time on Friday, October 23.

Adhering to the reporting deadline is necessary in order for CIVIX to include your school’s totals in the final results shared on election night (Monday, October 26).

All schools must keep their Student Vote results confidential until after the close of official polls. Election officials should be sworn to secrecy.


Past Results

During the 2016 Saskatchewan provincial election, nearly 20,000 students under the voting age learned about the democratic process, researched the candidates and party platforms, debated the future of Saskatchewan and, ultimately, cast ballots for the official candidates running in their local constituencies.

In total, 19,758 votes were reported from 273 schools, representing all 61 constituencies.

The Saskatchewan Party won a majority government with 48 seats and the NDP formed the official opposition with 13 seats.
