    Does it bother anyone else that the politicians have stopped trying to hide their misdirections? They are taking our apathy for granted. We have to stay upset about this and for longer than a media spin cycle.

    You are absolutely right. These people need to be held accountable and people need to start seeing through the lies.

    I was thinking about this issue last night as I was looking on your blog and I thought I should look up what it takes to be able to vote in Canada, where I live. I always go with my Drivers Licence or Passport so I never thought what you need if you don’t have these. I looked it up and was so pleased to see that everyone can vote in this country. Option 3 was a beautiful addition to allow people who lack ID to Vote.

    Here is a look at what I found on Elections Canada’s website. If you want to see examples of all these options I suggest you go look. I am sure our system has issues too, but was amazed and proud to have such an open elections process.

    To vote, you must prove your identity and address. You have three options:

    Option 1
    Show one original piece of identification with your photo, name and address. It must be issued by a government agency.

    Example: driver’s licence.


    Option 2

    Show two original pieces of authorized identification. Both pieces must have your name and one must also have your address.

    Example: health card and hydro bill.


    Option 3

    Take an oath and have an elector who knows you vouch for you. This person must have authorized identification and be from the same polling division as you. This person can only vouch for one person.

    Examples: a neighbour, your roommate.
