I Am Voting Campaign

Election season is here!

In partnership with UBC’s Centre for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL), DABC has created a printable guide to accompany UBC’s Centre for Inclusion and Citizenship’s I Am Voting campaign. The guide compiles information on voting and accessibility, including suggestions about what to look for when choosing a candidate.

Download the guide here. 

We hope that this guide will be a useful tool for the community before and on election day. Please print out a few copies for your office and share this with other organizations or individuals that might benefit from the information.

 Thank you, and happy voting!
