There is no more direct and powerful influence in an election cycle than casting a vote, and encouraging others to do so. Imagine the full force of the more than 26,000 nonprofits in Alberta joining together in an exciting and fun campaign to get out the vote. CCVO has launched the nonpartisan #NonProfitsVote campaign to encourage nonprofits to not only vote and encourage others to do so as well – but to also talk about the issues that matter to nonprofits, get informed on the parties’ positions on important issues, and have fun while doing it!
