Student Vote 2018

RHMS grade seven and eight students have been learning about government and the electoral process, and in June, they cast their ballots for the official election candidates.

The intermediate students were encouraged research the candidates and issues, and begin a dialogue among classrooms. 

According to Student Vote Ontario, the experience is a "hands-on learning program that brings democracy into the classroom and helps foster the habits of active and engaged citizenship."

Some students also volunteered to play the roles of deputy returning officers and poll clerks, and cast ballots for the official election candidates. 

The results were tabulated and shared with the classes after the close of the official polls.

"As of 4:00p.m. (ET) on June 7, 2,166 schools had reported their election results, representing all 124 electoral districts in the province. In total, 280,691 ballots were cast by student participants; 268,091 accepted ballots, 7,103 rejected ballots, 2,562 declined ballots and 2,935 unmarked ballots," reported Student Vote Ontario 2018.
