ⓘ Mock election

A mock election is an election organized for educational or transformative purposes. Often used in the creation of mock governments, like school bodies, or online communities.


1. For educational purposes

Secondary schools organize mock elections to introduce young people to the concept of elections before they have reached their voting age. The elections will give the participants an understanding of democracy, the role of government and parliament. The experience of the mock elections plays a role in stimulating future young voters to cast their ballot.

They can have real candidates or fake candidates depending on the school and what year the mock election is.
