University of Alberta Students Fight Voter Apathy

News Staff - Thu Mar 19, 2015

During the recent Students’ Union Executive election, students turned out in their highest numbers in seven years to reach a 22.8% turnout. With Provincial and Federal elections on the horizon, it is important to pay attention to these ballot-box questions: is this the start of a new trend in youth voting? How do we ensure youth in Canada get to the polls?

This coming Monday, March 23, Ilona Dougherty from Apathy is Boring will be joining The Right Honourable Kim Campbell and Students’ Union President William Lau to discuss why young adults don’t vote and what you can do about it.
