HARVARD BROADCASTING Alternative CFEX-F (X92.9)/CALGARY is urging its listeners to get out to the polls on OCTOBER 19th for CANADA's 42nd General Election, re-launching its JUST VOTE DAMMIT campaign.
For first-time voters, or those who need a quick refresher, X92.9 has set up its JUST VOTE DAMMIT website. The emphasis of the campaign is to encourage young CALGARIANS to go out and make their vote count.
In FEBRUARY 2014, the "Fair Elections Act" was introduced, which limits ELECTIONS CANADA in how they advertise the upcoming election, including any campaigns that encourage young voter turnout. Statistics have shown the 18-24-year-old and 25-34-year-old voter turnout are still the lowest demographics when it comes time to cast a ballot.
