NEXT OF KIN
See that your name is entered on the Voters' List. Registration
for provincial voters' lists or any recent registration is of no avail for
the purposes of the pending federal election. The lists for this election
are being made by enumators. They will be posted in the post office
or other conspicuous place in each polling division on December 2.
Make an opportunity to see that list and assure yourself that your
name is recorded thereon.
From December 2-12 the enumerators will sit two hours each day
to revise lists, adding names which should be on and striking off those
of unqualified persons. If you have been missed in the list first posted
up do not neglect to have your name added at this revision.
YOUR BALLOT IS FOR YOUR BOY.
Make it your own business to see that your name is on the list.
Your vote is needed. This you can do for your men folk at the front.
Make an opportunity to see that all the women you know who have
votes are entered on the lists. See that the issue is put straight to
them. On December 17 get out and vote for Union Government.
STAND BEHIND YOUr BOY AND NOT TOO FAR BEHIND.
War is not a game of cricket. There is not time for tea or refer-
endums. Nobody knows better than you that NOW is the time when
help must be sent. The Union Government when returned is pledged to
send that help.
Wives, Mothers, Sisters, Daughters (21 years of age, British sub-
ject by birth or naturalization, one year resident in Canada and three
months in the electoral division) of soldiers, sailors and nursing sisters,
living or dead who in the present war are serving or have served over-
seas with the CANADIAN OR THE IMPERIAL forces or with the
Canadian or the Imperial navy, it is up to YOU, YOU, YOU, to see that
this Union Government is returned.
Have your name on the List and if you have to be carried get to
the polls and register your vote, December 17.
