What is a Mock Election ?

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

Students get into the campaigning spirit by running as candidates, creating manifestos, canvassing support, as well as casting their first votes on polling day. They also help organise and administer the election to ensure it is free and fair. It is a great and fun way to teach young people about elections and democracy.
