YES to mayor for Brum say pupils: young maths experts get to grips with voting data



61% of pupils voted YES to having a directly elected mayor for Birmingham in the school’s mock referendum yesterday.
report by Oyinkansola Adebayo, Year 11 student:
The all-day event saw every pupil at the school cast a vote to say whether or not they supported the idea of an elected mayor in Birmingham. Voting booths and ballot boxes provided by the UK Youth Parliament and Birmingham City Council helped to make the event a real success, enabling pupils to cast their votes in the main hall.
At the end of the day, the results were counted and analysed by a group of talented Mathematicians from Years 7. The results are as follows: The voter turnout was 100% and overall 61% voted YES and 39% voted NO.
