Go vote!

I asked my confirmation class who I should vote for in tomorrow’s election. Without blinking they all said in unison “the Marijuana Party.”

Tomorrow, I am going to vote (sadly, for my confirmands, there is no MPC candidate in Lethbridge). PLEASE, go vote as well. I don’t care who you vote for. Just vote.

And don’t give me this “choosing not to vote is just as valid a form of electoral participation as casting a ballot” nonsense. Make the drive to Vulcan (yeah, I’m talking to you Mick) grab a ballot and put on X on it somewhere. Anywhere.

Vote. That’s the only way this whole democracy thing can work. Do not take our democratic freedoms for granted. For all our sakes.
