Student Vote Nunavut: The Results

October 30th, 2017 by CIVIX

2,000 Nunavut youth cast ballots in Student Vote program for the territorial election

More than 2,000 elementary and secondary students participated in the Student Vote project for the 2017 Nunavut territorial election.

After learning about territorial government and the electoral process, exploring the issues and candidates, and discussing the election with family and friends, students cast ballots for the official candidates running in their constituency.


By 7:00 p.m. ET, 23 schools had reported their election results, representing 14 constituencies throughout the territory. In total, 2,035 ballots were cast by student participants.


 Our online results platform allows you to explore results by each constituency, as well as by each individual school.

This is the first Student Vote program to be held for a territorial election in Nunavut. In the 2015 federal election, 1,198 Nunavut students participated from 12 registered schools.

Student Vote is the flagship program of CIVIX, Canada’s leading civic education charity. CIVIX provides authentic learning opportunities to help young Canadians develop the habits of active and engaged citizenship. CIVIX programming focuses on the themes of elections, government budgets, elected representatives and news literacy.

The Student Vote project for the 2017 territorial election was made possible with support from Elections Nunavut and the Government of Canada.
