In two schools mentioned above, we held "simulated voting and counting the ballots event" this year.
We took up "student council officer election" under the theme of "dessert provided in school lunch" in Aoki Elementary School in Rokukakubashi Junior High School and carried out vote, the official counting of votes using device which we used in speech by each candidate and real election in just like public performance.
In addition, about result of simulated voting and counting the ballots, we actually reflected to the school side.
We might use real device, and there were a great many students who voted with earnest expression, and some said, "election could happen" from students who saw ballot box for the first time. In both schools, it is thought that we were able to give opportunity to common knowledge of election and future vote.
