Students at Bilborough College take part in mock election
Students at Bilborough College exercised their right to vote after hearing from four political party candidates during a mock election.
The event was organised in a bid to encourage the 606 students who are eligible to vote to register in time for the upcoming election.
Candidates from the Lib Dems, Conservatives, Labour and the Green Party each delivered a five-minute speech to students before taking questions.
Students then cast their votes using real ballot boxes and voting booths and the overall winner was the Labour Party with 72 per cent of the votes. The Conservatives secured 13 per cent of the vote, the Green Party eight per cent and the Lib Dems seven per cent.
