Election day is here. Get off your asses and vote.

Get out and vote! 8179bb4f4b589dde682c270507fb

This is an important right that we have... that many do not.

I am going to vote today but I might just select "none of the above". Don't like my options;

It can be tough. I find that the more you look into any party, the less appealing it becomes. I always find that I'm choosing the lesser of 5 evils. Shrug

EDIT: Just to clarify, I said 5 to include whatever fringe party happens to appear on the ballot. There's usually one, most often the Marijuana Party in my riding.

Pick out the issues that are important to you, and go with the party that best represents your stance on those issues. That's about all you can do.

Of course. Unfortunately, the issues that I'm concerned with are best dealt with by 3 separate parties. I voted (advance polls), but I'm just saying that it isn't a cut and dried decision. Generally speaking, I think that it must be a difficult decision. If it's easy, you probably aren't looking to deeply at the various platforms (if at all).

It's good to ask your candidates what they have done for your local riding, find out what the incumbent has done for you. Often, people will vote "locally" if they are not sure what party to support.

Liberals are getting pounded. Bloc in Quebec are being obliterated by the NDP. Incredible changes.

Holy Dung, changes are coming for sure. Iggy has caused the temporary downfall of the Liberals.

The Liberals appointed/elected him their leader, that says it all.

Either way, they've been utterly destroyed because of him. I think I read 30 seats so far, but that's CAN'T be right...or can it..

I can't beleive how many seats the NDP got, but at least Jack's a heck of a lot better than Iggy! The other Iggy (Jarome) would have got more seats!

In Harper We Trust.

Harper got a majority? Not sure I like that idea.
