  • Municipal services, like the fire department or trash collection

Why we're asking you to spread the word

If we want to keep our democracy, we have to use it, even when what we're voting on is (seemingly) really small and local. Municipal elections have a pitifully low turnout... But you — and the people you know — can change that!

My name's Laef Kucheran! I'm a 21-year-old web developer from Burnaby.

I worked over 700 hours running VoteMate for this election. I volunteer all that time and pay for the site's expenses out of my own pocket because I believe it can help people vote. That matters to me.
