Voting and Youth In Canada!
Anyone with a citizenship who is over 18 can vote, but did you know that only about 37% of youth vote? This is not a very big number, and today we will be explaining why students should vote. Students NEED to vote for their schools and their future as well as their kid's futures.
Who Has The Right To Vote?
In Canada anyone who is over the age of 18 and has a citizenship can vote. But students are 18-25, they can vote, right? That's right but most choose not to. Why should they vote, does one vote make a difference? One vote matters. If students decide to vote, politicians would spend more of the money into education and less into other things that are not needed. This would greatly improve education for students everywhere.
The Importance of Voting and Why It Makes A Difference?
Even though you may think one vote doesn't make a difference, it makes a huge difference. It's mostly seniors voting at the moment, so politicians aim things towards them. If many students voted then politicians would aim more things towards them. It would make a difference in the future of the government. What the lack of voting says about our youth is that we are lazy and don't care about politics.
What Do Students Want Changed?
Education in Canada is great, but it can be improved a lot. Students in Canada always complain about what they want changed, like cheaper tuition. This is one thing that would cause students to care. Another thing would cause students to care would be knowing there would be better education for them and their future children.
The Actual Steps One Takes To Vote On Election Day (When, Where, How)?
Before we tell you the steps to vote, let's explain when, where, and how you vote. At provincial and federal levels, elections take place within five years. Elections at the municipal (city) level must take place every three years. Elections take place in public places where polls are set up. To vote you must be on the voters list and have an ID, then you can vote.
The Actual Steps One Takes To Vote!
Step 1: Register to vote.
Step 2: Go to your polling place on election day. An election official will check to see if you are on the list of registered voters and if so you will have to sign the list. Then you'll get a ballot. *If you can't get to your polling place on Election Day you can vote in an advanced poll.*
3. Vote for who you want! The returning officers will show you how to mark the ballot and put it in the ballot box.
How Do Voters Become Informed About Candidates, Parties, and Issues?
Voters receive information in a variety of ways, including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and online sources.
How Do Voters Recognize Main Points of View and Biases In Material Provided By Political Parties?
To find main points of view and biases in material provided by political parties you must get your news and views from several sources. Once a voter has done that they can (pretty quickly) be able to figure out the facts, the biases, and the lies.
