Please find info below on encouraging people who cycle to vote Yes by
helping out with the Mayors' Council Bike Route Canvassing.
If you are unavailable for the Mayors' Council Bike Route Canvassing,
you can also get a few people together in your neighbourhood and hand
out information along bike routes or streets or at events. Here is a
small flyer with information on cycling improvements and contact info
for registering to vote that is perfect for handing out to cyclists:

Volunteer - Mayors' Council Bike Route Canvassing
The transportation referendum is a critical moment for the future of
cycling in our region – possibly the greatest single opportunity ever.
A YES vote means funding for tripling our bikeway network, as well as
other essential improvements for safety and convenience. A NO vote
means no new regional funding for cycling and a decline in transit
Did you know that other transportation referendums in North America
have passed and failed by as few as 700 votes?
Every vote makes a difference. In recent canvasses, we've found that 1
out of 6 people want to vote yes but haven't registered or mailed in
their ballots yet. That's why we're organizing canvasses along popular
bicycle routes to let as many cyclists as possible know what's at
stake in this election.

We'll be holding a quick conference call at 4 pm on Monday, 5/4 to
orient all the volunteers, but if you can't make it, we'll follow up
with you individually.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions.
And if you haven't already, remember to vote YES and mail in your ballots!
