With vote mobs organized at over 30 campuses across the country, I knew it was only a matter of time before the craze hit my hometown of Winnipeg. Since the energy of these rallies is better illustrated with multimedia coverage than in print, I produced a video of the vote mob organized by students at the University of Winnipeg and University of Manitoba that took place on the U of W campus Wednesday for The Manitoban. Approximately 100 people, most of them students, showed up to support youth engagement in the upcoming federal election, along with a handful of local candidates.
