I’m Voting Today – Are You?


Posted by: Darick Battaglia

I know you know today is Election Day. How could you not with all the election signs and non-stop commercials!

I’m not here to ask you to vote for a specific Party, rather, I just want to encourage you to vote. We live in a GREAT country and we can only make things better when we get involved. Sadly, many of us don’t get involved, and in fact, over the last 10 years or so we are voting less and less.

The lowest voter turnout in Canadian history was in 2008, when voter turnout fell to only 58.8%. Voter turnout in the last Federal election was 61.4% – the third lowest in Canadian history. Yikes!

The voting stations are open for 12 hours today – typically 7am to 7pm. If you have not already voted, please take an hour and make your voice heard.

Get more information from Elections Canada Including what ID you need and where to vote.

Thank you!
