Election Day in Canada

It's election day in Canada, and I can't overstate how important it is that every eligible voter gets out there today and lets their voice be heard. If you haven't yet voted, check your voter information card for your polling station location and hours. Bring your information card with you, along with acceptable identification, as outlined on the website.

If you aren't sure how you can get to your polling station, call a friend or family member and ask if they can get you there. Or try calling the campaign offices of the local candidates - they often have volunteers to drive people to the polls.

I won't tell you who to vote for. But I will encourage you to vote, even if you're voting against my preferred candidate/party. Because we live in a democracy and everyone's voice should be heard. Voting is an incredible right, and an important responsibility. Let's not take that lightly, because so many people around the world are not so privileged. 

Polls in Ontario are open until 9:30 tonight, and I'll be tuning in to anxiously watch the results start to roll in. I cast my ballot. Have you?
