To the Non-Voters

Hey BC,

48% of you are lazy and/or apathetic, and it’s bullshit.

Democratically-elected leaders have mandates and exist in the public realm because WE vote (or apparently don’t vote) for them. If you can’t take a few minutes to inform yourself and then go take part in a process that other countries have fought, and are still fighting, civil wars to take part in, then there is something wrong with you, not the system.

Pretending these elections don’t affect our lives, healthcare, education, and the environment we live in is ignorant.

Don’t agree with any party? Then spoil your ballot and go organize: there is no excuse.

(And fyi, you should be engaged and organizing the rest of time, too.)

There are ways to vote ahead of time or from out of province, if that’s your situation.

I’m appalled.

My reaction to the 48% turnout

  • oh wait I nearly decided not to vote—despite the fact I’ve voted in every election I’ve been able to vote in and that I’m a politics nerd
  • yeah okay I guess I can’t judge
