Elections Alberta: Creating Sustainable Dialogue Around Elections
We've just completed year 2 of our partnership with Elections Alberta. This year, we worked with community partners across the province to create an Election Readiness Toolkit. Youth voter rates went up almost 20% in the last federal election, and we want to build on that momentum and see that upward trend reflected in future provincial elections. We want to use this time to build a no-pressure, non-partisan dialogue around how voting and government affects citizens' day to day life.
Our Election readiness toolkit has three parts:
In year one, we conducted a Get Out the Vote Campaign with the help of our incredible Street Team volunteers. Here are a few campaign highlights:
91 900+ users reached over Twitter in 7 weeks;
600 face-to-face conversations with youth across Alberta about where, when & how to vote;
300 hard-copy election information tools distributed;
5 100+ views of our online voting resources.
This project is made possible by the support of:
