P6A Predict General Election result

Primary 6A held their own General election on Thursday 1st June after watching the main parties political broadcasts and discussing each of their manifestos. The children received their own registration card which they took to the polling station and exchanged for a ballot card. Each child voted for one party and then posted their ballot into the box. The results were announced today to the class and if they mirror the real election in Edinburgh then Labour would take the seat.

The full results were as follows:

Labour 12 votes

SNP 8 votes

Green Party 4 votes

Liberal Democrats 1 vote

Conservative Party 1 vote

UK Indpendence Party 0 votes

The children commented that they felt they were making a real decision and that they were nervous by the prospect of voting. It was great that the children engaged in the topic so well and have demonstated a good understanding of the democratic process.
