Vote Vote Vote!

It's election day! You can vote until 9:30pm today at your designated polling station.

Some information you might want to know:

1. Where do I vote? How do I know where I'm supposed to go? You can only vote at your designated polling station unless you have a transfer statement. Click the link to find where to vote in your riding.

2. What do I need to bring in order to vote? Bring your driver's license. If you can't find that, make sure you have two pieces of ID that lists both your name and address (i.e. your health card and a bank statement). If you don't have any of that, you can get a registered voter with the right identification to vouch for you (i.e. your neighbour, your parents.)

3. I hate the Harper Government, how to I vote strategically and make sure it doesn't happen again? Check out the recent polls of your riding and then make your decision. It's too late to swap votes now, but you could live in a strategic riding, which means you might have to change your vote from NDP to Liberal, or to Conservative, if that's what you want. Remember, Harper can gain a majority with only 35% of votes!

4. Why should I vote? Well, you can design the society you want. Only 22% of our demographic turned out to vote at the 2000 election. Get on that shit kids.
