Research shows that when nonprofits encourage people to vote, it can make a difference in the voter turnout, particularly among the people we serve*.
Our public policy work is more successful when the people impacted by the policy are engaged in Canada’s democracy. To get people out to the ballot box, the Canada Vote Coalition has launched Canada’s largest voter engagement campaign. Co-led by the Democratic Engagement Exchange and Apathy is Boring, the campaign will be activating communities during Democracy Week (September 15-21) and on the International Day for Democracy (September 15).
The Exchange is also running free training around the country to teach organizations how to run Vote PopUps, a voting simulation based on best practices in voter mobilization.
Sign up at Canadian Vote Coalition to access tools and resources that can help get your clients and community out on October 21!
