On Thursday 30 January students in Loreto Bray went to the ballot boxes to cast their votes in the Mock Election for the Wicklow Constituency for the 2020 General Election.

After Class Prefects explained the PR-STV system to all in their respective Form Class, ballots were cast.

Comparing the Mock Election results to the General Election results, Loreto Bray students ‘elected’ 4 out of the 5 successful candidates; namely John Brady (Sinn Fein), Jennifer Whitmore (Social Democrats), Simon Harris (Fine Gael) and Steven Matthews (Green Party)

A special mention to 3 Clerke CSPE class and HAPSOC for organising and facilitating the election as well as conducting the counting of the votes.
