Student Vote compared with National Vote
by Webstaff - Tuesday, October 20, 2015
On October 14th, Saint John High School participated in a national initiative, "Student Vote". The students were invited to go to the library and cast their vote for their candidate in the Saint John - Rothesay Riding. The results were not shared until after the official polls had closed on October 19th.
The results of the student vote were as follows: Wayne Long 260, Rodney Weston 78, AJ Griffin 60, Sharon Murphy 46. And the results of the 2015 Saint John - Rothesay election were: Wayne Long 20,622 Rodney Weston 12,837 AJ Griffin 7,486 Sharon Murphy 1,344.
Overall, it was a great experience for the students, and a great way to encourage future participation in the voting process. Thank you very much to Mr. McKim and Mr. Davis for taking on such a worthwhile activity.
