Promote The Vote
Promote the Vote is a non-partisan movement of everyday Canadians increasing voter engagement through dialogue with each other.
Founded in 2014, Promote the Vote began from two simple ideas: everyone knows someone who does not vote (voter turnout was only 61% in the last federal election) and everyone listens to people they know and trust. Traditional outreach campaigns try to speak directly to people who do not vote. Promote the Vote takes a different approach, asking people who already vote to go one step further and encourage their friends and family to be politically engaged too.
Promote the Vote’s vision is a culture of political engagement in Canada. Through workshops and online support, the group helps everyday Canadians become engagement leaders. With a focus on listening, understanding and respect as necessary components of true dialogue, Promote the Vote’s engagement leaders are transforming the way we talk about and think about politics in Canada.
