Students Nova Scotia launches Get Out the Vote campaign

July 28, 2021
Students Nova Scotia has launched the Get Out the Vote campaign to encourage student voting in the upcoming provincial election. Students Nova Scotia will be holding online student information sessions with Elections Nova Scotia to help students learn about eligibility, registration, working at a returning office, and options for casting their ballot. The group will also be holding debates and Q&As with candidates, as well as encouraging students to pledge to vote. Lydia Houck, the executive director of Students Nova Scotia, explained that it is important for students to make their voices heard. “By showing up to the polls and showing decision-makers and politicians that students are paying attention, they're engaged, and these are the issues that matter to them, it really, really helps in ensuring those issues can be prioritized by government moving forward,” said Houck.
