School Election Pack

This pack has been produced by the Electoral Services team as part of our ongoing commitment to make young people more aware about the principles of democracy and explain to them how to vote and why it is important to vote.

The information and materials are designed to act as a guide to allow pupils and students to start to discuss, understand and participate in a school election process, which is based on a simplified core model used by the elections team to run all elections from Community Council By-Elections to Parliamentary General Elections.

We hope that this pack will provide you with some useful guidance materials and allow you to make your own school council election an exciting and informative day for both staff and pupils alike.
