    Hello Lovely Canadian Girls!
    Just a gentle tender nag to make sure you get out there and vote today, even if you aren't too thrilled with any of our choices!
    Our national voting turn-out has been pretty crap over the last few elections, so let's get those numbers up, ladies!
    Happy voting!

    Good!! It amazes me the amount of people I've talked to that aren't voting!! It drives me nuts to because they are the first ones to complain about the government and the crap the Prime minister does...like I said...if you don't vote I don't wanna hear you complaints!

    I KNOW! Its been pretty good around here though as far as I know...a lot of people that have never voted before went out and did it today.

    I'm quite surprised at how many people are supporting NDP around here - this place is ALWAYS split between Liberal and Conservative, NDP doesn't garner much support around the Atlantic provinces. Even if they don't win any ridings, I still think they're going to get more support than they're bargining for around here

    NDP is getting a lot of support out here. I think people are just sick and tired of Liberals and Conservatives and the same old things being said and never getting done. People are sick of it and want a change now..I'm pretty sure Conservatives will get in again...I wont be to happy but oh well I guess! Not much I can do, I voted and thats all I can do

    conservatives are gonna take away that extra money we just got for baby bonuses!
    like i told you em, i tried to go vote, but i'm registered in cobourg, and they wouldn't let me vote in scarborough... don't understand why not..

    OH works at CTV, and they have their own polling station for the employees, he's IT and has to work a double because CTV is doing the coverage this year... so they have to provide them with the station, and he had the same problem. got told he would need to vote in the city on his license..

    lol no its blacked out right now until after the polls close! My mom is working the election tonight and she said they block off all coverage from the elections so that way when its western Canada votes their not influenced by what has happened in the east and feels like they can make a difference.

    Blahhhh they are TOO close to that 155 for my liking. I'm hoping they'll pick up some NDP or Liberal in BC...
