Voting Guide for the 2015 Federal Elections

Flier summarizing the voting guide to help CUPE 2626 members vote in the 2015 Federal Election.

The 2015 Federal Election will take place next October 19. If you are a Canadian citizen, can prove your identity and address, and are at least 18 years old on Election Day, you can vote.

In the last Federal Election, only 38% of the youth voted. On October 19, it is crucial for students to go out and make their voices heard. CUPE 2626 encourages you to vote for the party or candidate you think best represents you as a student and a worker, and to vote for the change you feel Canada needs.

A lot is riding on this election: post-secondary education funding, climate change, better jobs for all, affordable childcare, indigenous rights, and public health care across Canada are a few of the important issues to consider. But there’s also the matter of the massive Conservative cuts throughout the last decade, the muzzling of scientists by the same government, and the overall state of Canadian democracy.

So on October 19 (or before!), go vote. CUPE 2626 has prepared a voting guide to help you navigate the voting process for the 2015 Federal Election. Visit or your nearest Elections Canada office for additional information.
