We know that the snap election and exam time made organising a mock election very difficult for many schools and participation levels are lower than usual. But mock elections is a great, and fun way to teach young people about elections and bring the principles and practices of our democracy to life. The students who participated this year should be better equipped with the skills and knowledge to take part in a general election when the time comes. A huge thank you to all those schools who took part.
