If you know me at all then you know very well that I get involved with causes I care about. And getting involved with an election is very much something I am passionate about too. If you don’t have time to vote or get up to speed on the issues then don’t complain to me about politics at all.
Five Ways to Get Involved with The Election
1. Get to know all the candidates in your riding. Ask them where they stand on the issues that are important to you. Follow them on twitter and Facebook. Check to see if you are on the voter’s list. That’s the simplest way to get involved.
2. Volunteer to help. If there’s one party that you support and want to win the election, share some of your time with them by offering to help canvas, or answer phones. Volunteering is an excellent way to get involved.
3. Ask for a lawn sign to demonstrate your support for the party that listens to your concerns and vows to address them. I have called for mine already.
4. Watch the debate. Read the platforms and get informed. There really is no reason to not be up to speed on the issues close to your heart. Platforms were once big heavy printed out booklets and now you can find them each on line, or in the cloud, easily.
5. Vote. Take the time to vote. No excuses. It really couldn’t be simpler. And frankly the province needs you as a taxpayer to take ownership of your vote.
