Today’s provincial election day in Beautiful BC, so to any Canadian citizens who’ve lived here for the last 6 months: PLEASE GO VOTE. You have until 8:00PM PDT tonight.
Find your local riding and voting place, as well as registration information at elections.bc.ca
You’ll also have the opportunity to vote for change in our current electoral system. You can either vote Yes or No for the Single Transferrable Vote – info available at the Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform website. There’s also a nifty bit of flash (about 3 minutes long) explaining how STV would work.
Remember, the privilege of democracy comes with certain responsibilities. One of those is participation in elections. So show up, vote for the candidate and system that you feel are right, or spoil your ballots entirely. Just please go and be counted. Your future thanks you.
