After days of furious campaigning the six candidates nervously waited for the results of the vote in the Christ College Mock Election.
Members of the school community including teachers, support staff and pupils all had the right to vote and were listed on the school’s electoral role.
With the Clive Richards Room having been turned into a polling station for the day, Mrs Sandhu and Kilpatrick ensured the registering and voting procedure mimicked that of the general election.
With votes counted and results collated, the Presiding Officer, Head of Christ College Mrs Emma Taylor, announced the results. It was a close contest in the end with James Pernas, representing the Conservatives narrowly beating Sam Maggs representing the Liberal Democrats. Cai Williams for the Labour Party was in third place. 427 votes were cast representing a 81% turnout.
Many thanks to Mrs Sandhu and Ms Kilpatrick for engaging the school community in the political process and to all those pupils and staff who got involved in the Christ College Mock Election.
