What does a Surrey voter look like? Take a look around our city and you’ll see examples everywhere — not just in the faces of passersby, but also in the City of Surrey’s highly visual voter turnout campaign.
You’ve probably spotted the campaign at transit shelters, on billboards, in city facilities and on the web. It features people front and centre, with all photos taken at familiar Surrey locations and a wide range of ages and cultural backgrounds to represent the diversity in eligible voters.
The City’s goal was to create an eye-catching campaign that appeals to all voters and spreads awareness of the upcoming election, equipping people with everything they need to make voting as easy as possible.
Alongside the campaign, the City of Surrey has launched surrey.ca/election, a hub for election information.
