OTTAWA – Today, the VoteParty.ca/VotePromise.ca initiative invited the public and media to come to any of the more than 25 election night vote parties in cities 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 all through election day today.
VoteParty.ca/VotePromise.ca is holding a national #VoteParty tonight. 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/
#VoteParty promises to be a great party!
Several Canadian celebrities have done promo videos asking voters to Make a #VoteDate at http://VoteParty.ca and take a non-voter to vote with you, or Make the #VotePromise at http://VotePromise.ca and help a non-voter vote.
VotePromise.ca and VoteParty.ca are initiatives of Democracy Education Network, since 1993 one of Canada’s leading civics education organizations.
