Vote Mob Winnipeg!
on April 15,2011 by jared
Vote Mobs encourage friends, families, neighbours and communities to get out and vote!
In the 2008 federal election, the youth voter turnout rate hit an all time low of only 37%. This statistic is deplorable. We want to ensure that the voices of youth are heard during this election. We must unite and show our politicians and the rest of Canada that we are engaged and that we plan on voting.
Bring signs stating issues that are important to you, as students and as young people in general (ie funding for post secondary education, tuition fees, public transportation, affordable housing, accessible education, etc). You are also encouraged to wear red and white and/or bring Canadian flags and other Canada paraphernalia.
We will be meeting at the University of Winnipeg at 12 pm on April 27th, but everyone (students, community members, etc.) are welcome to attend! We'll be filming a YouTube video, chalking about democracy on the Spence St promenade, plus there will be an Elections Canada kiosk onsite with information on how to vote.
This event is non-partisan. Please do not bring or wear any materials from a specific political party or candidate.
