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.

Because many young peo­ple don’t both­er to get out and vote, it’s easy for politi­cians to ignore the issues that are impor­tant to us. It is time for this to change. We must make our voic­es heard to our polit­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives, that we are informed and that we plan to exer­cise our demo­c­ra­t­ic right in vot­ing.
We seek to inspire and encour­age youth to become polit­i­cal­ly engaged in the elec­toral process by par­tic­i­pat­ing in their demo­c­ra­t­ic right to vote. We also wish to call atten­tion to issues that are impor­tant to stu­dents which are cur­rent­ly being ignored by all politi­cians.

If you val­ue democ­ra­cy, polit­i­cal engage­ment and want to set an exam­ple of par­tic­i­pa­tion an involve­ment in Cana­di­an pol­i­tics, we encour­age you to attend and express your vision for Cana­da. Youth have the pow­er to inspire pos­i­tive change and to influ­ence pol­i­tics. We must defeat vot­er apa­thy. Become engaged, empow­ered and above all, vote!

Send Cana­da a mes­sage… Youth are vot­ing this fed­er­al election.
