Celebrities coming to VoteParty.ca to help young voters vote -- National #VoteParty on Election Night September 20th

Make a #VoteDate with a non-voter and help them vote!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thursday, September 2, 2021

OTTAWA – Today, VoteParty.ca launched its national effort to increase the number of voters, especially young voters, who vote in the federal election, following up on its successful effort during the 2015 fall federal election that reached 3.5 million people across Canada and during the 2019 election that reached 1.5 million people across Canada.

The launch includes a Canadian celebrity montage English-language video featuring Rick Mercer, MAGIC! (#1 song “Rude”), Ashley Carlingbull (actress and Mrs. Universe), Michelle Morgan (from CBC’s “Heartland”) and Elena Juatco (from CTV’s “Jann”), and a French-language video for PartyVote.ca featuring Florence K, CBC’s C’est formidable radio show host and musician.

The two videos will be shown before every movie in 159 Cineplex theatres across Canada from Friday, September 3rd to Thursday, September 16th. Cineplex Entertainment has generously donated the cost of showing the video.

VoteParty.ca will also soon release videos by many other well-known Canadians on its VoteParty.ca website, as will its partner initiative VotePromise.ca. As well, there are many images that can be downloaded for sharing at VoteParty.ca and VotePromise.ca.

VoteParty.ca isn’t urging young voters just to vote, it’s inviting young voters to:
Make a #VoteDate with a non-voter and help them vote!

And then all are invited to come to the national #VoteParty on September 20th 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 Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/149158244050252.

Vote Party promises to be a great party.
