In analyzing student elections, one of the challenges Laurier Student Poll has faced has been determining which demographics matter. Recent polls indicate an interesting difference between the voting tendencies of the faculties at Laurier. More than 60% of students in the Business faculty claim to be either likely or certain to vote. On the other hand, Science students are less set into their decision to vote. 70% are either likely or not likely to vote. As these are the two middle options on the questionnaire, we can determine that most Science students are on the edge regarding whether or not they will vote. Overall, we can see that business students are more confident in their decision to vote and that Science students are much more hesitant to vote at all.
