OTTAWA – Today, the VoteParty.ca/VotePromise.ca initiative invited the public and media to come to any of the 20 election night vote parties in 7 provinces at: http://www.voteparty.ca/vote_parties
Anyone can register their election night party on that webpage (non-partisan parties that anyone can attend), and VoteParty.ca/VotePromise.ca will be sharing the word about all the parties on social media through the weekend and on election day October 19th.
Several Canadian celebrities have done promo videos for the initiative that can be seen on the http://VoteParty.ca and at http://VotePromise.ca websites. Please air the videos as PSAs on your TV channels and radio shows (the audio track) through the weekend.
VoteParty.ca is inviting voters to Make a #VoteDate and take a non-voter to vote with them, and VotePromise.ca is asking voters to Make the #VotePromise to help a non-voter vote.
VoteParty.ca/VotePromise.ca will hold a national #VoteParty on election night. Share your reaction to the election results, and what’s going on at your local Vote Party, on Twitter with #VoteParty, and on the open Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/events/503677783142702/
Vote Party promises to be a great party!
VotePromise.ca and VoteParty.ca are initiatives of Democracy Education Network, since 1993 one of Canada’s leading civics education organizations.
