Make a #VoteDate at VoteParty.ca and take a non-voter to vote with you
OTTAWA, Oct.1, 2015 /CNW/ - Today, VoteParty.ca launched its new national effort to increase the number of voters, especially young voters, who vote. The launch included a Canadian celebrity montage video on the http://VoteParty.ca homepage featuring Rick Mercer, MAGIC! (#1 song "Rude" in 2014), Ashley Callingbull (actress and Mrs. Universe), Michelle Morgan (from CBC's "Heartland") and Elena Juatco (from ABC's "Open Heart").
The video will be shown before movies in 160 Cineplex theatres across Canada from October 2-16. Cineplex Entertainment has generously donated the cost of showing the video.
VoteParty.ca isn't urging young voters to vote, it's inviting young voters to Make a #VoteDate at VoteParty.ca with a non-voter and take them to vote with you.
Don't vote alone, Vote Party together.
And then all are invited to come to the national #VoteParty on October 19th election night. Share your reaction to the election results, and what's going at your local Vote Party, on Twitter with #VoteParty, and on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/503677783142702/
Vote Party promises to be a great party.
Anyone who wants to invite other people in their area to a local Vote Party on October 19th can upload their party details and send out invitations at: http://www.voteparty.ca/vote_parties
