Grande Prairie, AB – Fifteen schools throughout Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWPSD) have registered to participate in the Student Vote Alberta. This free event will bring the 2019 Alberta Provincial Election into classrooms, as a means of empowering students to experience the voting process firsthand.
Registered schools receive print and online teaching materials, posters and election supplies. Students learn about government and the electoral process and are encouraged to research the issues, parties and candidates, and to engage in conversations with their friends and families.
During Student Vote Day, students fulfill the roles of election officers to coordinate a vote in their school. Students cast ballots for the candidates running in their school's electoral division. Results are shared publicly after general election polls close.
To learn more about how the program builds the habits of active and engaged citizenship in students, and to view election results, visit www.studentvote.ca.
