Trapped At the Poll: The Federal Election 2015
« on: October 18, 2015, 09:33:05 PM »
It is with great anxiety, and possibly terror, that I will be spending the entirety of tomorrow working at a poll for the federal election.

I will be arriving at the polling location at 8:00 in the morning, and won't be leaving until all the votes are cast and counted, probably around midnight.

Wish me luck ... and pity me.

If I do not make it, tell my family I love them.

I served as an election judge for several years.  It was quite the experience.  The stories I could tell!  You're fortunate you get to arrive at 8.  I had to arrive at 4:30, and didn't leave until 2 AM the next morning.

It is 1:18.  I just got home.  I finished at 1:00.

We spent two hours tracking down a poll number imbalance, but we eventually found it.

Time for bed.

Zzzzz

I was just learning about the voting process in civics class.

The Conservatives got spanked, and the Liberals took a majority government.

I have seen several news reports from other countries claiming Justin Trudeau won because he is handsome.

That is not true.

Justin Trudeau did not win because he is handsome.

He won because he was not Stephen Harper!
