Student Vote provides students with the opportunity to cast ballots for the official candidates in their municipality after learning about government and the electoral process, exploring the local issues, and discussing the election with family and friends.

From Moose Jaw to Regina to Prince Albert, more than 10,000 students from 80 municipalities are expected to cast ballots for their local council members and school board representatives. You can view all participating schools on our interactive map.

In addition to election materials, a wide variety of online tools have been made available to participating schools. The Student Vote website includes an online resource library with lesson plans, handouts and activity sheets, as well as other educational tools like videos and PowerPoints. Written profiles were prepared for many Saskatchewan municipalities.

Students in Saskatoon and Regina were invited to submit questions to the mayoral candidates. We selected three questions from each city and shared them with candidates, many of whom sent us back their video responses. The questions focused on key election issues and the Q&A videos can be viewed here for Saskatoon and here for Regina.

Student Vote is the flagship program of CIVIX, a national civic education charity dedicated to building the skills and habits of active and engaged citizenship among young Canadians.

This project is made possible due to financial support received from the Government of Saskatchewan and the Government of Canada.

The Student Vote election results will be released at the close of the official polls on Wednesday, October 25 (8 pm).
