Three Easy Ways for You to Get Informed Ahead of the October 20 Elections!
With the municipal elections coming up in a little more than a week (and advance voting already open in certain municipalities), here are three ways you can get informed before casting your ballot.
If you’re a Vancouver voter who wants to hear your mayoral and city council candidates speak on the arts, culture and heritage issues that matter to you, register now for our Vancouver All Candidates Meeting for Arts and Culture, coming up on Monday, October 15, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Museum of Vancouver. If you’re not in Vancouver, you can also click the link above to find an All Candidates Meeting near you.
If you want to read up on your candidates’ arts and culture platforms, check out their responses to our Candidates’ Survey here.
Lastly, you can keep track of your candidates and their positions via VoteMate, a free app and website developed by a Coquitlam high school student, Laef Kucheran. “The app includes profiles on each candidate and party, their policies, upcoming events, and a feature so that voters can ask candidates questions quickly and easily,” explains Laef. “Our goal is to make it easy for citizens to get informed before voting without taking up too much of their time, in the hope that this might encourage more people to vote.” It’s free, so check it out.
We’re in the home stretch. Let’s vote together for arts, culture and heritage!
