Disability Matters Vote 2016

Lots of work getting done

In the last few weeks Disability Matters: Vote 2016 has been very busy getting information ready for you to support the campaign.

Five key priorities:
With your help, we identified the 5 Key Priorities for the Disability Matters: Vote 2016 campaign and launched them at a press conference last week. To see the priorities: http://www.disabilitymatters2016.ca/uploads/ck/files/priority_issues.pdf

Get ready to vote:
We created an enumeration document to help everyone understand the enumeration process and how to ensure that every person that wants to vote is on the voter's list. You can look at the document here and other how to vote information here: http://www.disabilitymatters2016.ca/how-to-vote

Participate in the campaign:
We developed an Election Tool Kit to help you get involved in the campaign and ensure that your voice is heard! There are many very easy ways to become involved, from following the campaign and participating on social media, asking questions of the candidates that come to your door or ordering a sign for your lawn. Please help in any way you can, you can start by downloading the toolkit here: http://www.disabilitymatters2016.ca/priority-issues

Met with candidates:
Since meeting with the candidates from each party, we've now sent them the five key priorities and asked them to respond in writing to our questions. As we receive these responses, we will post them on the DMV2016 website to help you make your voting decision.

Constituency captains:
We've met with volunteers captains for the 16 key swing constituencies and some of the volunteers working on those teams. All captains have an action plan and are ready to accept volunteers. If you're interested in volunteering, please sign up here: http://www.disabilitymatters2016.ca/get-involved/contact-us

Thank you:
We've heard from politicians, media and disability partners in the field that people are taking notice of this campaign. Thank you for being a part of history.
