Election campaign season is in full swing, and I’d love your help spreading the word. Here are a number of ways that you can get involved. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or suggestions: email@example.com
As you may have heard by now, there are two candidates running for the position of Electoral Area A director (you can read more about the second candidate here). This means there will be an election on October 15th, and I have been working hard on pulling campaign materials together.
If you would like to get involved with the campaign, I will be most grateful for any help you are able to provide. Here are some ways you could help:
1. Help hand out brochures in your building/neighbourhood. Please let me know what area you can help me reach. I’m also happy to come and work with you to get the brochures distributed to a whole building or street. I have lots of brochures, so send me a note and I can get some to you.
2. Help hand out brochures at Save On or other community hotspots (UBC Farm? Wesbrook? the local schools?…). I will be at Save On Foods on Sunday Oct 2 from 3:30-5:30pm, and would love your help. Kids welcome! If you would be willing to bake treats for this event, that would be very welcome as well. If you have other ideas for hotspots, please let me know.
3. Wear a “Vote Jen” button. These can be a great conversation starter about the election.
4. Grab a lawn sign for your lawn or visible front window. I’m still working on these but hope to have them available soon.
5. Invite me to an event that is happening (or that we arrange). This could be meeting with residents in your building or at your local meeting. I always really enjoy meeting residents, and hearing their concerns and ideas.
6. Generally spread the word that a) there is an election coming up (details in my brochure) and b) that you are supporting my re-election. This can be done in person, via your social media channels or WeChat. I’ve attached the electronic version of my brochure here. Feel free to share it.
7. Make a financial contribution to the campaign. While electoral area campaigns are nothing like City of Vancouver ones, it does cost money to have brochures, lawn signs, and buttons printed, as well as to mail out brochures. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so via cheque (to Jen McCutcheon Election Campaign) or etransfer (to firstname.lastname@example.org). Elections BC requires strict monitoring of election donations, so if you make a donation via etransfer, please also fill out this simple form so that we can track donations. A big thank you to Bill Holmes for being my financial agent again this election!
8. Suggest other campaign ideas… I’m certainly no expert at all this, and would welcome your ideas 🙂
If you need brochures, buttons or lawn signs, please let me know. I’m happy to drop them off for you, or you could pick them up from my place on Main Mall.
