The Vancouver municipal elections are around the corner and there are 157 candidates running for 27 positions.
Trying to narrow down who to vote for can be difficult, especially if you’re in the millennial age bracket. In fact, a recent poll showed that 50% of Vancouver’s millennials did not know who to vote for in the upcoming election.
With the help of the Forum for Millennial Leadership (FML), Daily Hive has worked to create a list of candidates under 40 running in the Vancouver municipal race.
A newly-formed non-partisan organization, FML is dedicated to strengthening the voice of Millennials in Canada, helping to #ElectMillennials regardless of party, ideology, or level of government.
