Student Vote 2015
Student Vote event. This vote was different than the normal election because to legally vote you have to be 18 or over.
Before the vote, we reviewed the four main parties: Liberal, Conservative, NDP, and Green (there was no Bloc Quebecois candidate in Delta). We also talked about the responsibilities of the three levels of government: Federal, Provincial, and Municipal. After that, we got to "vote" for real Delta candidates.
We vote because we are part of a democracy which allows us to vote for MPs (Members of Parliament) to express our support to his or her party. I had a lot of fun doing the practice vote. For our Student Vote, I found out that 40.5% of us voted for the Green party!
