Did you know only 17.5 per cent of Chilliwack residents voted in the last civic election? It’s time to change that on Twitter with #ValleyVotes.
The Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) is hosting two non-partisan Twitter parties to encourage all communities in the Fraser Valley to vote in Nov. 15 municipal election.
From 7-8 p.m. on Oct.29 use #ValleyVotes to join the conversation on Twitter with Chilliwack mayoral and council candidates.
Registered participants will be entered to win gift cards to Kuro Asian Cuisine, Zaika Tastes of India, Harvest Store & Cafe, Starbucks, and more! To register for the twitter party, RSVP at the Eventbrite page: http://jell.ly/DpEMR.
Make a difference in your city’s election. RSVP for the Twitter Party and don’t forget to vote on November 15.
