Nelly Furtado has rallied fellow Canadian stars including Justin Bieber and Avril Lavigne in a bid to persuade young people in the country to vote in the upcoming election.
The singer is determined to boost youth turnout numbers when Canada goes to the polls on 2 May (11) to elect a new prime minister and she has started campaigning on her Twitter.com page to encourage more youngsters into the voting booths.
Furtado has been handing out advice to confused fans and answering their questions about the upcoming election, as well as reaching out to other stars, asking them to join her campaign.
She sent a message to Bieber, telling the teen star to "encourage 18+ fans to vote in Canadian federal election, May 2nd. It's easy!"
Furtado later wrote to Lavigne, "Are you going to vote in our Canadian federal election on May 2nd? It's easy to fill out an away ballot if u r (sic) on tour."
She writes on her own page, "Hey, Canada - ages 18-35... Who's voting in the federal election? I am, as usual. It's on May 2nd, 2011. It's really easy to register... If youth continue 2 (sic) be no-shows at polls, our concerns will continue 2 be on mute; doesn't matter who u vote for."
