The tallies are in, and Hermione Granger of the Wizocrat party won with 64% of the vote. MuggleNet and Kingsley Shacklebolt welcome Hermione into the Minstry and congratulate her on the win!
As most of you know, MuggleNet has been hosting a Ministry of Magic Election
to determine who should be the next Minister of Magic in the Wizarding World. The final vote is today, as YOU have narrowed it down to two candidates: Hermione Granger from the Wizocrat Party
and Kingsley Shacklebolt from the Hogican Party
Voting has now opened, and you can get in the Voting Booth right here
! Be sure to read the candidate's stances
and check out early polls
from The Daily Prophet and The Quibbler to help determine who to vote for. In the Voting Booth
, you'll notice that there are a couple demographic questions (age, location, and gender). These are only collected so we can learn how different groups of people vote.
And lastly, a reminder: the United States is having their Presidential election today. We encourage EVERYONE who is registered to vote to please go out and support your candidate, as this is a very important election. Google has this nice election center map
to help you find your nearest voting location and more. And thanks to the Harry Potter fandom, Wizard Rock the Vote
registered over 900 new voters.
