Free Documentary Shows How Conservative Staffers Led Voters to Wrong Polling Stations During 2011 Election - 2015-10-16
The film, "Election Day in Canada: The Rise of Voter Suppression," is available in a draft screener form online until midnight, October 18.
In 2011 voters across Canada received automated phone calls, also known as robocalls, that notified them their polling station has been relocated when they in fact had not. Other calls seem designed to harass voters with fake calls from opposition parties late at night or on holidays.
The new documentary film shows how these and other 'voter suppression' tactics, such as placing the name of candidates on ballots who were not in the running, were used to the benefit of the Conservative Party of Canada.
