Canadians: Get Ready to Vote

Every election is important. Every eligible voter should be able to exercise the right. If you are eligible and haven't received a Voter Information Card from Elections Canada for the Federal election on Monday, 19 October giving the hours and location where you vote, as well as information on advance voting and other ways to vote, please refer to the information below.
Don't forget, to vote you need to take acceptable voter ID with you to prove you're who you say you are -- one piece of government-issued ID with your photo, name and address.

You can vote before the 19th if that makes things easier. You can vote at ANY Elections Canada office across Canada. Visit the office before the deadline of Tuesday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m. Offices are open Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m. Bring your proof of identity and address and know the name of the candidate that you want to vote for.

Good for you, John - about voting. Whether you look at it as a duty, a right or a privilege, it is the responsibility of a citizen living in a parliamentary democracy. Failure to exercise that responsibility is the last resort of...........

Once you have all the technicalities looked after be sure to educate yourself on the issues and vote wisely. You get the government you vote for and there is lots of information on your riding available online - riding by riding. In Ottawa last night they held an all candidates meeting for citizen to listen to what the parties stood for. Only one Conservative showed up while the Liberals, NDP and Green Parties all sent their candidates. Your vote, however you do it shows you value your citizenship in Canada. You can't complain if you don't vote.
