Students Vote!

On Friday, my school had a mock election. Everyone got to vote.

At school, everyone was excited about it. The Conservatives won 1st place with Liberals in a close 2nd. It would have been a minority government because the Conservatives only had around 110 seats. The NDPs and Greens were very close together.

I think schools have mock elections because they help kids get a chance to vote and make their voice known. I also thinks it helps to show people how to vote because the may not know how to.

Mock election results will be differently so this might not happen in the real election. In the website below, it states that younger people tend to vote left leaning (Liberal, NDP, and Green).
