Tomorrow is Election Day!
I am so excited!
I can’t wait to cast my ballot and then wait and see the results from riding after riding after riding come pouring in.
We always take our kids and talk about it a LOT leading up to the election. As you can imagine, my Things are pretty well versed at this point because it has been 77 days since the election was called. Tomorrow will be day 78 and every single day has involved a conversation about what Canada means to us. We can’t wait!
It matters to me and it should matter to you.
I love this country and I have great hope for its future.
I know you have heard it a bazillion times over the past few months, but please, oh, please, oh, please go and exercise your right to vote tomorrow. The polls are open for 12 hours. That is a long time. Make sure you take the time to go and cast your ballot.
There are people in this world who would die for this right that we so often take for granted.
Think about that.
There are women who fought in this country for this right. It wasn’t all that long ago. It is shamefully recent history if you really think about it. Do not disrespect them by disregarding what they laid their lives on the line to accomplish.
They fought for you and me.
They gave us the right.
It is yours.
Here’s a helpful video!
Once you vote and pat yourself on the back for taking part in the direction your own country takes, you will want to find out about the race and who is winning it. Who is doing well in your riding? Did your candidate win? Is your chosen party getting new seats in Ottawa? It’s all so exciting! You just want to know!
How will you know?
There are so many ways!
You will absolutely be hearing election coverage on radio and television both locally and Nationally. It will pretty much be unavoidable! Yay!
Here is another helpful tool from Elections Canada!
Since I am an avid Twitter user, I will definitely be following along on Twitter. You can follow Elections Canada here.
Essentially, the only way to not hear about the election on Monday October 19, 2015 would be to bury your head in the sand. And you don’t want to do that, now, do you? I mean, you’ll be in the dark and you will have sand in your ears. And that just sounds awful! * shudders *
Since we are all on Social Media why not go ahead and pledge to vote and show it? You can change your profile pictures! Check this out! Fun!
Okay! So we are ALL voting right?
I knew I liked you guys!
Let’s do this!
So tell me, did you already vote? Will you vote tomorrow? Are you as excited as I am? Are you taking your kids with you? Will you be following along on social media and waiting to hear the exciting news at the end of the night?
I know I won’t be alone.
Twitter will be all, well – a twitter – with politics.
I hope to tweet you there!
AFTER you vote!
