Kind of a crazy response - it's over because I voted already. I don't know if they have it everywhere, but in the Hamilton area, voting is October 3rd, 4th and 6th. Everyone I know has either already voted, or is going to this weekend.

Some people will probably procrastinate, but then, one ends up having to travel crazy distances and wait in big long lines - when doing it now is easy and convenient. But it is best to get it done as soon as possible, because with this slate of effete losers, there is not much to choose from.

I voted today and my daughter will vote tomorrow. Most of her friends plan on voting this weekend.

Yes, I'm considering voting in one of those crazy "advanced polls," although I can also vote during lunch on election day avoiding the evening line-ups.

The Advance polls leave little excuse not to vote.

I think they should only have the Advance Polls - and scrap the whole election day thing. It is just too hard to get out to vote on election days, and no amount of laws, rules or regulations can assist in getting people out of work in time to vote. My mom and dad fit into that category, as their work day corresponds to the times the polls are open.

Not only that, but the numbers of students that can not vote on a weekday because of classes and the travel back to their ridings. They do have a scam to allow them to vote in the riding the school is in, but only if they are residential students. The ones that have to commute back and forth just can't do it. Now that I am back in school, I fit into that category as I have mandatory school attendance, and I wouldn't want to squander one of my three allowed absences on an election - when I can vote at a more convenient and less busy time.

I think most people are going to the Advanced Polls in these parts, and it was quite a crowd when my girlfriend voted on Saturday. We have a large number of Jewish people in this neighbourhood, and they will not be voting on their holy days. Add to that the students that turned out, and all of the people that decided that it was convenient to go and vote because they were out and about doing grocery shopping or out on the studio tour this weekend.

The savvy politicians have already been out campaigning, knowing that almost half of the voters that will vote will have done that by the close of the polls on Monday - and there will only be the procrastinators and stragglers left for the actual Election Day...
