A movement is underway on the St. FX University campus to encourage more students to vote in next week’s municipal election. Leading the campaign to get out the vote is the St. FX Students Union.
Vice President External, Annie Sirois says it’s had several initiatives on campus. There was a debate of the candidates running for Antigonish Mayor, and students met with Town returning officers to determine if they are eligible to vote.
Sirois says there seems to be more student interest in the municipal election.
Sirois also welcomes the introduction of electronic voting in the town election, which she says will make it easier for students to cast their ballot.
