What do you get when you mix democracy and rock? If you guessed Derockracy, you're only half right. TurnUpYVR is a group that's hoping to encourage early polling by filling a school bus full of local musicians and reminding young voters to cast early. From their website,
"Ride along withDan Mangan, Kuba Oms, Shawn Hall of The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer with Shaun Verreault of Wide Mouth Mason, Zaac Pick, Charlie Kerr of JPNSGRLS, Ryan Guldemond ofMother Mother, the The Boom Booms, and others as we host bus-based concerts that shuttle you to voting locations."
That's right, friends... you'll get a ride to the polls. With bands playing. Find out what some of your favourite local artists from bands like Bend Sinister, Hey Ocean!, Gold & Youth, Rococe and more think about Canadian democracy on the TurnUpYVR blog.
Just grab your registered voting cards, your ID, and your democratic spirits. The bus picks up from City Hall - don't forget to check your riding and find out what time to show up. You'll never have more fun voting - guaranteed.
