What is a Mock Election ?

Recreate the excitement and drama of a real election in your school!!

Y Vote Mock Elections actively engage students with the political, social and moral issues that concern them by giving them the opportunity to stand as party candidates, speech writers and canvassers in a mock election. Students voice their opinions by engaging in a fun active citizenship exercise which provides an excellent introduction to the mechanics and issues involved in an election.
