Most of them aren’t old enough to vote just yet, but Central Okanagan high school students cast ballots in a mock civic election and the results are in.

Kelowna’s teens chose Colin Basran to be this city’s newly elected mayor.

His would-be council included, Ryan Donn, Tracy Gray, Bobby Kennedy, Alan Monk, Luke Stack, Ken Chung, Cal Condy and Maxine Dehart.

Students from 11 schools across the Central Okanagan took part in the mock election which is held by CIVIX and is aimed at raising awareness of election issues among youth.

It’s the eighth time thousands of high school students across B.C. have been polled in the two days leading to the election, and representatives from CIVIX say the results tend to mirror the real thing.

Colin Basran, Mayor, Elected, 481 votes

Sam Condy, Mayor, 225 votes

Chuck Hardy, Mayor, 70 votes

James Murphy, Mayor, 34 votes

Kelly Row, Mayor, 60 votes
