Residents Asked to ‘Make the Pledge’ for 2016 Municipal Election

Lloydminster, AB/SK – An interactive voter-engagement initiative is calling on Lloydminster residents to make a personal pledge to vote in the 2016 Municipal Election.

From August to October 2016, the ‘Your Voice. Your Vote.’ campaign will be visible at several Lloydminster venues and public events. Volunteers will be on hand to share important voting information and encourage potential voters to get interactive by signing Pledge Cards and participating in social media activities.

“Voter participation across this country has been in decline and Lloydminster has not been immune. In the 2012 election only 11 per cent of the community exercised its democratic right to vote,” said Doug Rodwell, City Clerk. “The decisions made at the municipal level have the most direct impact on essential services such as safety, water services, garbage collection and recreation; so it is incredibly important for all residents to be involved in the process; learn about the issues, learn about the candidates and cast a vote on October 26.”

Photos and video collected through ‘Your Voice. Your Vote.’ engagements will be shared via social media at http://www.facebook.com/Lloydvotes and http://www.twitter.com/LloydVotes. Residents are encouraged to use the #LloydVotes hashtag.

Anyone wishing to learn more about ‘Your Voice. Your Vote ’activities, pick up a Pledge Card or share their pledge by photo or video should email yourvoice@lloydminster.ca to make arrangements.
