Election Challenge 2022


Hey D4 education workers, the Provincial Election is on June 2 and we want to make sure we have 100% member voter turnout. We have created a fun little contest to help keep the voting booth in the back of your mind.

How does it work? We have purchased two $200 Visa gift cards for you to win.

How do I win?  Simply enter as many as eight ballots into the two draws and you are eligible.

When is the draw? The draws will take place on May 20th  and June 3rd . You are eligible to win either or both gift cards as all ballots remain in the draw right to the end.

How do I get a ballot ? Every time you do one of the actions listed below, send a quick email to sarafinanne@gmail.com with your name and you will automatically be entered. You can get up to 12 ballots if you complete all the tasks greatly increasing your odds of winning.

What if I never win anything? You are in luck. If you complete  8 of the suggested actions on the list and email sarafinanne@gmail.com you will automatically win a $10 Tim Hortons gift card and you will still be entered into the draw for the larger gift cards.

Do I have to vote for certain candidate ? No. It is your choice who you vote for but we will be sharing information on all the candidates and we strongly encourage you to vote for one that is education friendly.
