S3 Election Helpers

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements, Important Announcements, Wider Curriculum

 

Well done to some of our S3 students who did a superb job at the Highland Council Election Count yesterday.

Our students helped to sort out ballot boxes, sort ballot papers and transfer them for electronic counting. It was a busy day for the students who coped well while being very closely observed by the candidates and election officials.

Young People in Scotland aged over 16 are able to vote in Scottish Parliament and Local Council Elections. The next Scottish Local Elections are on Thursday 4 May. Anyone aged 16 or over on that day can vote. However, anyone aged over 14 is able to register to vote.

We will be supporting all eligible young people to register to vote in the next month or so using Electoral Commission approved materials.

Meantime, anyone eligible to vote or to register to vote can do so on the Scottish Government Website. The Registration deadline is 17 April.
