While researching my TVO piece on the 1974 Canadian federal election, I found this series of ads from Elections Canada urging urban dwellers to get on the voters' list, even if that meant a quick run in the buff to the nearest returning officer.

The series was illustrated by editorial cartoonist Yardley Jones, whose stops included the Edmonton Journal, Montreal Star, and Toronto Telegram.  It appeared in many major papers across the country.
