The Election

Folks, Ontario Election and Referendum Day is upon us, and it is time for you to get out there and vote! You know you got your voter information card in the mail [hell, I got three!] and it really doesn't take too much time to make yourself heard.


Make sure you take the time today, Wednesday, to go to your local elementary school or church or other designated polling station [mine happens to be down the hall in my apartment building. Score!] as stated on your card, and help mold the future of our lovely province!

Do you not know who you're voting for? Do you not understand the referendum question? Look it up! Information on the Referendum to decide which voting system should be used in the future can be found HERE. Make a good decision on this; it will affect how we choose our provincial government in the future, and that could be very good, or very bad! To find information on who you are voting for in your riding, go to the Elections Ontario site and find out who they are. Then, since you're already on the internet, find out what these people want to do for you and your community.

Get out there and vote, people. If you don't, you're not allowed to complain!

i voted...my votes lost as well. i don't think i'll complain though...what purpose would it serve?

well its not about complaining for the fun of it, but those who vote have a certain right in that they tried to make a change and if they didn't win, they get to voice their opinions.

if you don't vote at all, there is no reason that you should be allowed to disagree with the decisions made. if you are not going to do your part [in an election or in any other aspect of life] then it is unfair to those who DO pitch in if you are being heard.

complaining or not, i am glad you voted stacy :D ... although 100% of people i have asked have had their votes lose. is that possible? haha
