Edmonton Elections

      Comments Off on Edmonton Elections

Edmonton Elections would like to make sure that all Edmontonians know about the election and how to vote, so we have created a set of 8 articles that go through all the steps a person needs to know. We believe it is important to ensure that as many Edmontonians as possible know about their options for voting, how to vote, and the steps we are taking to make voting as barrier free as possible; we would appreciate your assistance with sharing these messages.

I have attached hyperlinks to where these documents exist on our website for your use below. Please let me know if you would like a brief description of each. You can use them in any way you want, over the next 5 months. You can attach them to your newsletter/bulletin, print them as posters or reading, or re-write them to better suit your audience. You can use them all at once, or space them out in different formats to help build excitement as we get closer to the election. This content is entirely free use, so you can decide what works best for your organization. If you need to copy and paste information, please try downloading the PDFs from the links, as that should allow you to do so. Please let me know if you require help with this, as I have a photo tutorial demonstrating how this works.

We would be appreciative if you let us know when you use them – either by filling out this Google form, https://goo.gl/forms/kfoPVCBUsADlBEA03, or sending us a quick email to mayja.embleton@edmonton.ca.
