Elections Alberta: Creating Sustainable Dialogue Around Elections
We are in Year 2 of our partnership with Elections Alberta working to support and encourage youth to vote by providing young voters with elections information, developing resources with our nonprofit partners across the province, and rallying the charitable sector around youth electoral engagement.
We're currently interviewing our partner organizations across Alberta to inform the development of an Election Readiness Toolkit targeting youth 18-25 who are not in school. If you're an organization or young person in Alberta and want to get involved, please reach out!
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.
