  1. I'm voting in the advance poll this weekend. Its my official say in the governing of the province. Our tuition is affected, my future taxes, bills and transit improvements.

  2. I'm definitely voting. It's a democratic responsibility.

  3. No because I'm living in another province and am too lazy to do whatever I was suppose to do to vote.

  4. Its actually quite easy to get your address changed so that you can vote here. I voted yesterday at an advanced poll and got my address changed for here. All I needed was my lease and my ID. The return office is at 735 Bridge St W, Waterloo.

  5. No, because my vote doesn't matter. Not that one vote is too tiny to make a difference, but that the party choice doesn't make a difference because they will all wind up doing the same things anyway. When is the last time any party did anything they said they were going to do before the election?

    1. Liberals - "30% Off" Tuition Rebate"

      Sure, it's a shitty rebate that has way too much exclusionary criteria and is only actually 30% off for the cheapest uni programs (aka general arts, ahs, environment, and science programs), but they did bring it in after the last election.

    2. Actually your vote does make a difference especially in waterloo because its a swing riding.

    3. Voting is the only way to ensure that the idiot Conservatives and Tim Hudack have no power, unless you don't want a job in the future, pay higher taxes, not have a teacher for your children or any of the other idiotic things he will do like tie OSAP to grades.

  7. I will vote, because I want my opinion and my demographic to be recognized.

  8. I'm not going to vote because I don't make an effort to follow politics. I honestly have no idea what I would be voting for. For every person who tells me "don't vote for X because he/she supports Y", there is another person saying the exact opposite. I'd rather abstain than giving a vote to someone I don't know much about.

  9. I am going to vote, but I will be declining my vote since I am unhappy with all the parties.

  10. Already voted, main reason is that I have the right to vote when many people in different countries do not have this right. Also I want to try to keep my friend in a job with the provincial government. He has a masters in politics, and no trade training.

  12. I just voted today via advanced voting. Except for the 2011 provincial election, (I was living in Kitchener and going to Conestoga, and I didn't know how or if I could vote while in a different electoral district), I have voted in almost all of the elections that I have been eligible to vote in. Personally, I love the freedom and the choices, even though you usually have to decide your choice via coin toss. (Haha!)

    All joking aside, yes we may some very brutal choices to pick from a good chunk of the time, but at least we have that choice and that freedom in the first place. Other countries could kill to have our freedoms like Vietnam, China and North Korea. (No offense to anyone from either countries.)

  13. Definitely voting, it makes a huge difference, we're all part of this country, we should do our research and get to decide who takes the lead for our province.
