THE 2018 PROVINCIAL ELECTION

On June 7, 2018, Ontarians will decide the next Provincial Government by electing members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

According to Statistics Canada, Ontarians ages 25-34 have the lowest voter turnout; they don’t even collect data for individuals under 25.

It's time to disrupt the numbers.

Do your research, choose your party and VOTE. #STUDENTSVOTE
