The youth vote has been an asset for many political parties throughout the 2015 Federal election campaign.

Two Courtenay city councilors are looking to attract that youth vote & to educate younger members of the community on the importance of voting.

David Frisch explains exactly what We The Voters is all about.

Frisch says it’s something he was working on alongside fellow councilor Rebecca Lennox during their own election campaign.

Frisch says the group is holding an event on Tuesday.

The #NotYourAverageDebateNight takes place at the Courtenay Legion from 6 until 9:00PM.

The event will focus on the importance of participating in not only federal elections, but municipal as well as provincial votes. Frisch adds you can find out more by checking out the We The Voters Facebook page, as well as their website.
