Student Vote: A vision of the Canadian electorate 2020?

I blogged last Fall about an initiative here in Canada called Student Vote that runs in parallel to the general election. The program educates over 400,000 young people about political issues and allows them to cast mock ballots that are tallied according to riding, as would real ballots.

As the voting public digests the results of yesterday’s Federal election, I thought I’d bring it up once again. Viewing the disparate results between young students and those eligible to vote, I have to believe that as this next generation matures, they will elect a fairly different (and greener) Parliament than we did this time around.

I don’t necessarily agree.

“If you’re not a liberal when you’re 20, you have no heart. If
you’re not a conservative when you’re 40, you have no head.”

I used to donate money to greenpeace when I was 19. five years later, I spent a lot more time paying attention to what the conservatives have to say.

I half agree with Oren’s comment and half with Naumi’s. Many people are looking at the youth vote for the Green’s as a ‘post-ideological’ vote, a la Barack Obama. This could very well be reflective of how young voters approach other issues besides the environment. As Naumi mentioned, in the end I think, the strength of the Green Party youth vote will indicate a greener parliament in the years to come.

However, Oren’s comment is well taken with regards to the expected right-shift of young voters as they age, at least in the context of the 3 traditional parties. It’ll be interesting to see how the Liberals, NDP or Conservatives approach this evolving paradigm.
