Even though they’re too young to vote, students at RD Parker are getting involved in this year’s federal election.

 

The students got a chance to do a mock campaign and voting process earlier this week.

 

The school had a presentation from Power to Choose, an education program developed by Elections Manitoba. With the federal election being on the forefront, Teacher Teresa Jenkins says they’re hoping they can create future voters. 

 

Over 200 students got to make up speeches to convince their classmates to vote for them.

 

Jenkins says the school will also be hosting a parallel election next week, which will give students the experience of the voting process firsthand.
