Strath Indy Ref - Mock Referendum

  • Wed, 16/10/2013 - 12:33

    The Union staged its own mock referendum on the 24th April 2013. We recieved 856 ballots, which equates to a 5% turnout. The mock referendum asked the same question as the full referendum: Should Scotland be an independent country? Yes or No.
    The results were as follows:

    - YES: 386 (45%)
    - NO: 467 (55%)

    USSA would like to give its thanks to all those that took part in our debates. We also offer special thanks to the two campaign teams - Better Together Strathclyde and Yes! Strathclyde for their work encouraging students to vote on the day.
