Wednesday, September 23, 2015 - 4:00am

Ontario’s university presidents have signed a pledge to support student participation in the upcoming election. According to the Council of Ontario Universities, in the 2011 federal election voter turnout among youth aged 18 to 24 was 39 per cent – far below the 75 per cent participation rate for citizens aged 65 to 74.

This year OCAD University will be hosting a polling station for the Spadina-Fort York riding only. If you do not live in the riding, you must vote in the riding of your residence.

As a student, you have another option: Elections Canada offices will be open on 39 college and university campuses from October 5 to 8. Any student can vote at these offices, regardless of where their home is located. Nearby locations include University of Toronto and Ryerson University (please note, OCAD U is not among these office sites)
