About the Author


Elizabeth MacLeod believes voting is important, so she was delighted to write this book. She hopes it will inspire readers to get involved in elections and let their voices be heard. No wonder Liz's favorite chapter to write was chapter 4, since it gives so many reasons why it's vital that people vote. She also loved discovering all the weird places where people have voted, researching the story of Susanna Salter and learning about the footpowder that won an election! Liz has written more than 70 biographies, picture books, cookbooks and other nonfiction books. Dinosaurs, royal murder, horses that changed history, forensic science--she's written about them all. Liz has also won many awards for her writing, including the Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children's Non-Fiction, an Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile or Young Adult Crime Book and Children's Choice awards across Canada, including the Hackmatack, Red Cedar, Red Maple and Silver Birch Awards. Liz loves researching and discovering amazing facts, and then sharing the information and secrets she uncovers. Get Out and Vote is Liz's fourth book with Orca. Her other books for Orca, cowritten with Frieda Wishinsky, are How to Become an Accidental Genius, How to Become an Accidental Activist and How to Become an Accidental Entrepreneur.
