October XIXth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
On this Election Day here in The Dominion Of Canada:
- I strongly encourage folks to bring children & grandchildren & cousins & nieces & nephews to the polling stations with them when they vote. This will get them excited about the democratic process & more likely to want to vote themselves.
- I strongly encourage as many first time student voters age XVIII (18) & over who can votes for the Ist time to actually do so. In this way, its ingrained in their system that voting is what keeps the democratic process strong.
- I strongly encourage teachers to let students write up their questions to Elections Canada on the voting process & send them in.
Vote Often & Vote Early,
