Today we launched a NEW App on Facebook that lets you take the first step toward voting for the new Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada by signing up as a Supporter.
And it also lets you invite your Facebook friends to follow your lead. All of a sudden you can give hundreds of Canadians the chance to choose our Leader and get involved in politics for the first time. That’s an incredible thing to be able to offer your family and friends.
But there’s more. Be the one to sign up the most Supporters and you could win an iPad! (Or a $500 gift certificate at the Apple Store.)
The March 3 deadline to sign up to participate in the 2013 LPC Leadership vote is just 6 days away.
We need your help to start a wave of grassroots recruitment – right from your Facebook page – and right now.
Here’s how it works:
1. Click here to install the app. (A Facebook account is required)
2. Once the app is installed, fill out the form to sign up as a Supporter.
3. After you’ve signed up, click the red button that says “Invite Your Friends”.
4. Start inviting your friends to take the first step toward voting by signing up as Supporters!
It’s that easy.
So what are you waiting for? Give yourself and your friends and family the opportunity to choose our Leader and decide who will replace Stephen Harper as Prime Minister.
Meanwhile, we’ll be watching to see who has signed up the most Supporters. We’ll post the names of the top 10 contenders on the LPC Facebook page every day. And we’ll announce the winner on Facebook after the deadline!
National Director, Liberal Party of Canada
P.S. If you are not on Facebook but still wish to sign up as Supporter, click here.
