Hello Vancouverites!

There are only a few more days until the election.  In order to get you into voting mode we urge you to revisit our survey responses, which have recently been updated. Click the appropriate link to view the responses from the Parks Board Candidates, Mayoral Candidates, and Council Candidates.

Additionally, we want to get a better idea of what your priorities are.  So we urge you to fill out the VPSN’s one question survey.  The question?  It’s 20 years from now in Vancouver.  If your vision for the city succeeds, what is THE BIG CHANGE everyone will be talking about?  You can register your responses here.  Responses will be posted on the Vancouver Votes home page.
