If student votes counted in the B.C. election, the results in Surrey and White Rock would still be the same!
Leading up to voting day, students from 80 schools in the district cast 7,854 ballots as part of Student Vote, an initiative that uses elections to teach about democracy and the importance of voting. In all nine Surrey and White Rock ridings, the Student Vote winning candidates mirrored the actual election results.
According to students, the BC NDP won seven ridings – Surrey-Cloverdale, Surrey-Fleetwood, Surrey-Green Timbers, Surrey-Guildford, Surrey-Newton, Surrey-Panorama and Surrey-Whalley – while the BC Liberal Party took Surrey South and Surrey-White Rock. The local student results are as follows:
Surrey-Fleetwood students cast the most votes, accounting for 1,689 of the ballots cast in the district. However, Earl Marriott Secondary in Surrey-White Rock cast the most votes as a school population, totalling 893 ballots, followed by Fleetwood Park Secondary with 810 and Guildford Park Secondary with 670.
More than half of the students in Surrey-Panorama, Surrey-Newton, Surrey-Fleetwood and Surrey-Green Timbers voted NDP, taking 58.73, 54.63, 54.20 and 53.68% of the vote, respectively. The closest race was in Surrey-White Rock, with the BC Liberal Party squeaking out the victory by 10 student votes over the NDP, a difference of less than one per cent.
The Green Party also fared well among students, receiving no less than 18.25% of the vote in any given riding.
