Calgary and Edmonton Mayoral Candidates Respond to Student Vote Questions

October 2nd, 2017 by CIVIX

Next week, elementary and junior/senior high school students from more than 900 Alberta schools will participate in the local elections through the Student Vote program.

On Student Vote Day (October 12 and 13), students will take on the roles of election officials and coordinate a vote for the election candidates running in their school’s municipality. Results are reported to CIVIX confidentially and shared publicly following the close of the polls on October 16.

To help students prepare for their Student Vote Day (October 12 and 13), CIVIX asked the mayoral candidates in Calgary and Edmonton to respond to four questions from students in their respective cities.

CALGARY
