mellowlee said...

Oooh I just noticed that the Gogol Bordello show is tonight too! What an exciting day for you!!

Remi said...

On my way down to vote right now.

justrun said...

Not yet. But voting is hot!

justrun said...

Oh and i just noticed someone else said it's sexy.
That's also true.

Captain Karen said...

You betcha. Just got back. Guess that means I'm sexy!

Bubs said...

Not yet, but my bride is voting early this week.

Oops. Wrong election.

Allison said...

Indeed I did. Now, I await the results, while watching the Rick Mercer report.

Dale said...

I did but I know the results already without turning on the teevee, at least I think I do.

kelly said...

yes ma'am three times

Stephanie said...

Yes!! I love voting!

Sean Wraight said...

Sure did!

I'm predicting a STUNNING Conservative minority...

I sure hope my John K. Samson write in ballot makes a difference!

Remi said...

Voted. Such a simple act but oh so important.

Tanya Espanya said...

Voted last week since we're in Montreal now.

Yay! Sexy time!

URBAN BLONDE said...

Yes, I performed my exercise in futility.

I carefully placed an X next to a name who I knew would never win here in this Tory chokehold neighbourhood. Sigh....

Toccata said...

Well, I just read Kelly's comment and after watching the results I needed that laugh!

Oh, and in answer to your question, of course! The elderly man ahead of me in line made me want to cry. He looked very ill, was wrapped in blankets and was being pushed by a friend that had to go elsewhere to cast his vote. The elderly man said nothing was going to stop him from voting!

Ruh said...

Yes! It was my first federal election! The results were less than exciting (I hope Gogol Bordello was better for you than watching the entire province of Alberta go Conservative again).

I just read Toccata's comment and man, I wish there were more people like that in the world. By contrast, I asked a friend at dinnertime if she had voted yet, and she said she not only wasn't going to, but that she had not voted once in the three years she'd become eligible because she just "didn't have the inclination". Uh.

If you do not speak for yourself, you allow others to speak for you. I believe in that motto wholeheartedly and I can't understand why someone wouldn't. With the right to vote comes the right to not vote, I suppose, but ... why?

Well, we'll see how this turns out.

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

of course.

bloody awful poetry said...

Well, no. But I can in four years! And then after another 5 years or so I'll totally be Canadian and then I can vote there too.

mister anchovy said...

yes I voted, and the candidate I supported won his seat. Unfortunately, voter turnout was only 59%.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Good job, you sexy voter, Mel! Gogol Bordello concert was astounding! Details to follow.

Good job, Remi.

I know you will when the time comes, Justrun. Cause you are sexy that way.

Well done, you sexy beast, Karen.

As long as you vote, Bubs!

Thank god for Mercer to give us a reason to smile throughout this whole debacle, Al.

Sadly, we all did, Dale.

You make up for the abysmal showing from the rest of the country, then, Kelly, nicely done.

It has a certain dignity to it, doesn't it, Stephanie?

I wish I had thought to write in the name of a more suitable candidate, Sean! I'm glad you were thinking, though.

You are absolutely right, of course, Remi. But it sure is frustrating at times.

Oooo lucky, Tanya! You got a nice clean voting booth AND you get to go to Montreal. I want to live your life.

Sigh. I did the same, Urban. But at least we have the satisfaction of knowing that we have each given $1.82 to the party of our choice with that vote.

That's really quite a poignant tale, Toccata! Good for him! It makes me stop griping about the results for a while even.

We started listening to election coverage on the radio on the way to the concert, Ruh and had to switch to a cd after a few minutes because it was way too depressing and the outcome was never in question here anyway.
But at least we have earned to the to complain, through the action of voting.

I knew you would, 668.

The Resident Offspring is annoyed that she missed being able to vote by a few months, BAP. It's heartening to know that some of you youngsters take the responsibility seriously.
We need you in Canada!

So glad that I actually know someone whose candidate won, Mister Anchovy! Abysmal turnout thought.

my guy got in too! barely but still in!

Gifted Typist said...

I always vote, and I vote often

John Mutford said...

I voted. Here in Yellowknife we elected a New Democrat. We did our part, what the heck's wrong with the rest of the country?

BeckEye said...

Am I allowed? Can I write in Corey Hart?

~Jen~ said...

yes and what a grand waste of time and money it was....sighhhhhhhhhhh

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Tomorrow I will vote.

justacoolcat said...

I assume you're talking about my baby onesie contest. So, no, not yet.

Bridget Jones said...

Oh yes, but they won anyway!!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Glad to hear it, 668! Obviously you do not live in Alberta.

You and Kelly both went to the he who votes most votes best school, Gifted.

That's the big question,John, for which nobody has any answers.

Please do, Beckeye. He can't be worse than the current PM.

It was a big retarded waste of time and money, Jen. Everybody lost too!

Good, Dr M, you're a good monkey!

Yes I was, JustA, that's the only important election that I am aware of.

Drives you nuts, doesn't it, Bridget?
