Nelly Furtado Uses Twitter to Encourage Canadians to Vote
Nelly Furtado is taking to her Twitter page to launch a new campaign that encourages young adults to make a difference and vote in the upcoming federal election, taking place on May 2.
Her tweets over the past week have been riling up her faithful followers who want to hear about other career news, but the singer is determined to only tweet about the election until it's over.
Among her tweets are tips to students who are eligible to vote, as well as information on the forms that can be found on the Elections Canada website. Furtado is also giving her followers, which consist of nearly two million fans, a reminder about non-democratic countries where the citizens are not allowed to cast their vote.
Wednesday morning, Furtado did the good deed of informing her followers that if you are working on election day, you are legally permitted three hours off from the job to go cast your vote in the election.
