Getting out the vote! Community posters.
Updating voters' lists, promoting through social media and posters.

Challenge: Providing quality logistical expertise, confidential recording and storing systems, covering large geographical areas, against a very short timeline. Hiring and managing deputy returning officers and polling clerks in every Nunavut community. Managing nominations. Getting out the vote through media and community action. Ensuring objectivity, fairness and uniform application of the rules. Recruiting and managing large teams, including prominent Inuit leaders acting as chief returning officers, and election staff in every community. And being flexible when blizzards hit on elections day!

Outcome: Ayaya as the agency of choice for running elections, as demonstrated by major Inuit organizations and municipalities. A clear reputation for unbiased elections management, operated with Ayaya's patented efficiency, unfazed by disruptions whether political or environmental. When you're at home in Nunavut, you're prepared for blizzards!
