The questionnaires were analyzed using statistical methods such as descriptive statistics, t-test and variance analysis. The main findings of this study can be summarized as follows: (i) The referendum knowledge and political attitudes of current high school and vocational school students were above the average. (ii) With regard to high school and vocational school students’ referendum knowledge, "citizen participation" was the highest, "referendum process" was the second highest, and the lowest was the "referendum act." (iii) Regarding the political attitudes, the "feelings of political efficacy" score among the high school and vocational school students was the highest, the second highest was the "sense of citizen duty" and the "political trust" was the lowest.
