The next phase of our Get Out The Vote campaign is starting off with a bang today, as we announce the number of university students who have already signed up to vote in the provincial election on April 23. Our campaign has been talking to students about the importance of the next election and making sure they are heard on election day and now the time has come to stand up and be counted.

And it is an election where every vote is going to matter.

Polls go up and down in every election campaign but every indication is that this election is going to be particularly close. There hasn’t been an election in Alberta like this since 1993, back when many university students were not even born yet.

If you have not taken the time to pledge to vote on April 23 – sign up now! And there are still 26 days until the vote and we still have thousands of students to talk to and that is going to take help. If you want to help your Students’ Union get out the student vote on April 23 let us know and we would love to have you on board. W have a great team of student volunteers working hard and need all the help we can get.

This is going to an extraordinary election, and students could make the difference and decide who is going to lead our province. Stand up and be heard!
