It’s called ‘ getting out the vote’ and it’s what all the political parties are doing today in Ontario.
For the last six weeks ( I know, it felt like six years ) they’ve been knocking on our doors and phoning us and delivering those campaign flyers that we love so much, all in the hopes of winning our support.
If you told them you’d support their candidate, you’re an ‘identified voter’ so today they will call you or knock on your door again and even offer you a ride to the polling station to make sure that you vote.
It’s a huge part of the campaign process.
Only about 50% of eligible voters actually cast a ballot, which means that getting out the identified voters for your candidate is Job One today.
Of course, it’s also a day for political dirty tricks ; like the London PC candidate who sent out incorrect information about polling locations .
It just happened that all of those incorrect info cards were delivered to identified Liberal households… what a co-incidence !
Anyway, we have some pretty clear choices in today’s election.
It’s our future and it’s our money that they spend.
Our CHML election coverage begins at 7 tonight with reporters in all the area ridings and lots of in depth analysis from our Election Night Panel.
But before join us, do your part and get out and vote.
