Canadians go to the polls, again.
Are you a disaffected and angry voter? Planning to pass on election day? Unwilling to play ‘party games' again? Shouldn't an election be about hope and renewal?
There is one alternative. Reject your ballot on election day! Make the election a referendum on our political system!!
It is hard for people to express dissatisfaction with our politics other than not voting. But not voting does nothing to fix our political system.
In the 2008 federal election 94,733 ballots were reported as rejected. A Rejected Ballot is one that cannot be counted because it is improperly marked. The easiest way is to make no mark or select two or more choices. Elections Canada reports the number of Rejected Ballots.
