Over 5,000 schools registered for Student Vote

September 16th, 2015 by CIVIX
Last week the federal campaign reached its midpoint, and CIVIX officially launched Student Vote 2015 in schools across Canada.

As of noon today, 5,735 schools are registered for Student Vote, representing all 338 electoral districts, and shattering our registration records in the previous federal election by more than 1,400 schools.

You can view all participating schools on our interactive map:

The team is working around the clock to serve these schools to the best of our ability. On Monday, we’ll have our team split between four locations across the country: in our Toronto office responding to calls and emails from teachers, at our East York warehouse preparing and mailing packages, and in both Calgary and Montreal running Democracy Bootcamp teacher training conferences.

More than 400 teachers will attend a Bootcamp on Monday, all of whom are registered Student Vote Team Leaders. They will learn about how to best bring the election to their classroom, as well as hearing directly from local candidates and pundits like Kathleen Monk, Jaime Watt, Scott Reid and Tasha Kheirridin.

In addition to distributing thousands of free resource packages to schools across the country, we are preparing Student Vote participants for their election days by simultaneously producing the most current and relevant content possible.

We are proud to have The Globe and Mail as our official content partner for this election. On Monday, we spoke with The Globe’s Jane Taber about what to expect in tomorrow’s leaders’ debate on the economy. You can watch here: 

 
We will have more to share with you next week and throughout the final month of the campaign,

Taylor
