An Election Quandary

WHat do you do when you don't feel you can vote for any of the candidates but still feel that it is important to vote?

That is my problem in this election (voting day Jan 23). None of the local candidates inspires me. ANd none of the party platforms inspires me enough to overlook the individual candidates. Oh well, at least I have 2 weeks to figure it out...

  1. Elections Canada has an option for you: refusal of ballot. You go in, sign up as usual to vote, then, when the ballot is handed to you, you return the ballot unopened to the electoral officer (who may look nonplussed, as this rarely happens). You say something to the effect that you refuse your ballot.

    It means that you are unable, in all conscience, to vote for any of the candidates on your ballot; it is counted as a refusal, and not as a spoiled ballot.
