General Election

Last week we staged a mock general election as the rest of the country went to the polls. Many of our students will be eligible to vote in the next general election so hopefully this experience has given them some food for thought and will spur them on to remain politically engaged, forming opinions and judgments on the people who run the country.

The results were as follows…

90% turnout of student voters.

Labour – 51.9% (295 votes)
UKIP – 22.8% (129 votes)
Conservatives – 9.3% (53 votes)
Liberal Democrats – 6.6% (38 votes)
Green Party – 5.3% (30 votes)
Abstentions – 3.2% (18 votes)
Spoiled – 0.9% (5 votes)
