Election day is something of an Event for a lot of my social circle. It's like the Stanley Cup playoffs for the politically-minded. But it's also really really important.
So here's one very important message for my Canadian readers: get out there and vote! If you're not registered, check out Elections Canada's Web site to see what kinds of ID you need to bring. (Incidentally, can I just say how much it amuses me that "Is someone allowed to eat a ballot?" is one of their Frequently Asked Questions? You just know there's a story behind that.)
