Description
Student Vote lets students experience the voting process themselves and build the habits of active and engaged citizenship. Students learn about government and the electoral process, as well as the current election issues, parties and candidates through classroom learning, campaign activities, media consumption and family dialogue. On Student Vote Day, students act as election officials and co-ordinate a vote for the election candidates running in their school’s electoral district. Teachers can register online to receive activity guides, campaign posters, electoral district maps, ballots and ballot boxes.
