Hey, Defenders of democracy — Elizabeth May needs YOUR help!
This is the last big push to re-elect Elizabeth May.
Ever heard of GOTV? Stands for Get Out The Vote
It’s time to Get out the Vote in Saanich - Gulf Islands
And I mean ALL the vote!
One thing we know for sure is that whenever Greens get elected, voter turnout goes up. That’s because Greens inspire people to get engaged—even people who’ve never voted before, or gave up years ago when they decided it didn’t make a difference.
Campaigns that are committed to a better way of doing politics are catching on to this method of GOTV which celebrates and enhances democracy.
Jane Philpott, Independent Candidate for Markham-Stouffville has this to say:
“This is one more way we’re doing politics differently. It’s a “Get out the vote” strategy that is not like the others.”
She was inspired to attempt the Full Pull after reading Dave Meslin’s book called “Teardown: Rebuilding democracy from the ground up.”
