Running a mock election with one or more whole year groups (or even a whole school) - with suggested extension activities for those with plenty of time and resources!

Everything you need to run a standard mock election can be found here in seven manageable steps.
You can follow the steps through online here, downloading and printing templates as you need them. Alternatively if you would prefer a paper version you can download and print the whole Y Vote pack.
Many of the campaign materials that can be downloaded here are also available to pupils in the ‘Run a Campaign’ section of the website.
Remember that Y Vote Mock Elections are flexible and you can adapt what we have suggested to suit your own needs. Some activities need to be run at lunchtimes with certain pupils but others may take place during citizenship lessons or tutor time.
