Donuts for pledges: SAMRU hands out tasty pastries for students promising to vote
By Ricardo-Andres Garcia, Staff Writer
SAMRU gave out massive Texas donuts on March 14 to encourage students to vote.
Vice-President External Amanda LeBlanc says, “We are having students promise to vote in the upcoming provincial election and in turn we are going to give them a donut.”
By pledging, students are entered into a weekly draw for a $150 bookstore gift card.
“We really want to thank students and encourage them to get out to vote in this year’s provincial election,” says LeBlanc.
By registering, students received a delicious donut and will also receive an email reminder to vote on the upcoming provincial election.
LeBlanc is running a non-partisan Get Out The Vote campaign, during which she will be asking MRU students to pledge to vote in the 2019 Alberta election.
She says, “It is important that our students’ voice is represented because we all have a stake in Alberta’s future.
