Student Vote: Canada’s Federal Election 2015

Once again, ESA is taking part in Student Vote, the 2015 edition.

  • Our in-school Election Day has been changed to Thursday October 15th (due to a scheduling conflict which has arisen).

Is the upcoming Federal Election of interest to you?  Would you like to learn a little bit about the behind the scenes reality of an Election Day?

We’re still looking for student volunteers to act as Poll Clerks and Deputy Returning Officers for our in school Student Vote 2015.
