I Try

She was from Stats Canada ("Or elections B.C.   Or something like that...").  My sister was pretty much her choice demographic.

"Did you vote in the last election?"
"Errr.  I was out of the country."
"So you didn't vote?"
"Uh...  No."
"You weren't aware of alternative voting options?
"There are alternative voting options?"
"Alright, thank-you.  How did you hear about last election?"
"Facebook."
"And your primary source of information?"
"Ummm, Facebook."
"Did you receive your Elections Canada voter's card?"
"...My parents might have..."
"How did you know you're registered to vote?"
"I'm registered to vote?"
"So, have you ever voted in a national or regional election?"
"Umm...  I don't know.  I don't remember.  I don't think so?"

They say change should start at home.  I try.  Really, I do.

I didn't even know you needed a voter's card until I showed up at my first election without it and the lady went 'Voter's card please' and I went 'Wait, what?'

"Didn't you get one in the mail?"

"Uh... no."

"Have you registered to vote?"

"You have to register?"

*scoff* "Please go to the table over there."

No-one had ever told me you needed to register. When I asked my parents, they didn't even know.
