Excited to Vote
Comment by Colleen Austin on 16th November 2011
Although I've always voted in the civic elections, I am more excited than usual about this one. I would like to see a new record for turnout this I encourage everyone to get out and vote today! I believe that we are on the verge of creating the city & surrounding area we have been dreaming of for awhile.
Comment by Stacey Tyers on 15th November 2011
I do believe you can also if you do not have utility bills, IE just moved here 30 days ago etc... Or are 18 and have no bills etc.. You can have a registered voter vouche for you I believe. IE your parents? An aunt and uncle a friend etc..
You are fast Sasa...

We have added the School board and Regional District. It has been a frustrating morning trying to find all of the information in one place. Now we need to find the Scrutineers Rules.... Voting is the easy part of this election.
The thrill of casting a vote!
Comment by Sasa Loggin on 15th November 2011
I have voted since I became a Canadian citizen 3 years ago in every election and we sure had many opportunities!
I always find it thrilling to mark my choices as I sometimes don't know till the last moment who I'm going to select.

As a member of the Baha'i Faith, I don't belong to any political party or faction as we always strive for unity. In every election I vote for who I consider the best person(s) for the job at hand.

This civic election has many very caring, very capable people. They are our neighbours who are very much the same as you or I. They have put their names forward, gone through many forums, dialogues and conversations. I think that they deserve our trip to the voting station.
PS: School Board vote as well: Terrace (2), Thornhill (1)
