Full disclosure: One of the organizers of the UBC Vote Mob, Alyssa Koehn, is currently my student (she is taking my Public Policy course). Which makes me all the more proud to promote her event, as I know that her intent in organizing this event is to encourage youth to vote in the upcoming Canadian election. The UBC Vote Mob will take place on Wednesday April 20th at the grassy knoll area (right across from the Student Union Building) from 12 noon to 2pm. If you want more information on Vote Mobs, you can check the Lead Now website. You are encouraged to wear red, white, and maple. The idea of Vote Mobs is to encourage youth’s participation in political life, using social mobilization techniques that may harness the use of social networks.

Feel free to share this post (and be forewarned that this is a non-partisan event, it’s primarily a “get your vote on” event).
