Scrutineers are our most critical need right now!
Here are the details:
There are four Advance Polling days over the Thanksgiving weekend - Friday Oct 11th, Saturday Oct 12th, Sunday Oct 13th and Monday Oct 14th. The polls are open from 9am to 9pm.
We are looking for Scrutineers at 17 polling locations: 12 on the big island and 1 on each of the Gulf Islands. These are volunteers who will commit to one (or more) 4-hour shifts on one (or more) of the Advance Polling days, covering the 12 hours that the polls are open.
Election Day is Monday Oct 21st and the polls are open from 7am to 7pm. We are looking for Scrutineers who will commit to one (or more) 4-hour shifts at 30 polling locations to cover the whole day, plus the vote count. Although it can sometimes take longer, you can expect to spend approximately 2 hours monitoring the vote count.
We will do our best to honour your preferred time(s) and polling location(s) but that will not be possible in all cases.
If you have not signed up to volunteer as a scrutineer, please contact us.

On behalf of Elizabeth May, thank you for helping with this most urgent activity.
Election Day Coordinator
PS Effective scrutineering requires many, many volunteers so please consider forwarding this message to a friend. This is our all-hands-on-deck moment.
Thank you to all our volunteers who worked tirelessly to re-elect Elizabeth May.
Voters are beginning to realize that Greens are the change everyone is waiting for!
Across the country more and more citizens are realizing that real change comes not from voting someone out, but by voting for what our hearts know is possible!
This is happening because we are connecting, listening and learning from one another — finding common ground and discussing what’s possible together.
We're counting down to a very special event.
On June 8th, 2019, Elizabeth May celebrates her birthday—at a big party on Salt Spring Island!
The greatest gift we can give her this year is a knock-out election win!
And contributions from supporters like you will be key to our success.
Shhhhh! Elizabeth doesn't know about this. The plan is to surprise her on the big day with a huge boost to her campaign funds.
Why we're raising money:
Our goal for this pledge drive is to raise $8,000
This will allow her local re-election campaign team to:
- Hire key volunteer support staff, so important to organizing a huge volunteer effort
- Rent a Salt Spring Campaign office starting this summer
- Produce a professional short video celebrating Elizabeth's commitment to saving the world—you know it's gonna go viral!
How it works:
- You and many others make a pledge to donate using the form on this page
- Then on the big day, the 'bomb goes off' and contributions rush in (code for: a member of our team will reach out to you and help you complete the transaction)
Please spread the word by sharing this page—every bit helps.
P.S. The federal EDA donation limit for 2019 is $1,600 and if you pay federal income tax you will receive a rebate for as much as 75% of your donation.
