elections bc

How do Canadian non-residents vote?

You can only vote in the BC election if:

-You’re 18 or older.

-You’re a resident of BC and have lived in the province for at least 6 months.

-You’re a Canadian citizen.

If you’re not a Canadian citizen you can’t vote, but you can still donate or volunteer for political parties.

ikon were supposed to cb in may but not at the beginning bc of elections and the end of may is too close to their dome tour for them to be able to promote properly and now psy is coming back at the end of may 

In Paris tonight they’re doing a “Barricades Night” to protest against France’s current politics & the elections and everything and,,,, imagine Enjolras

in an update that will surprise literally no one: britain is still a fucking mess

“we can still be friends no matter what your political beliefs”

listen i respect that but like

i do not wanna be friends for people who agree with the racist, sexist, homophobic, classist, egotistical, violent, xenophobic, orange man who gleefully boasts about sexually assaulting women, has made several racially charged remarks/tweets that are not backed up with any evidence, has been forced away from his twitter because he cannot control himself, and is not willing to accept the peaceful transfer of power bc he thinks that everything is rigged against him

like if your cool with ur friends voting for that instead of the clearly more qualified candidate who actually values basic human rights than be my guest but dont expect me to stick around for their nasty asses

Aliens are definitely real. They’re among us right now. Um… I mean, 100 %.

There is a Transgender woman running in the 2017 provincial election in BC, Canada.

I just thought I should bring this to tumblr’s attention. Transgender activists rarely have the opportunity to run for political office, but Morgane Oger just became the official party nominee in a riding in Vancouver, for one of the two large political parties in the province of British Columbia.

To my knowledge a transgender person has never successfully been elected as a MLA (member of legislative assembly) in Canada.

Morgane Oger is running for the BC New Democratic Party (NDP) in the Vancouver riding of Vancouver-False Creek. She’s running against Sam Sullivan (one of Vancouver’s former mayors), who belongs to the BC Liberal Party.

The BC NDP = Centre-Left Party.

The BC Liberals = Centre-Right Party.

If you want to know more about the political views of the BC NDP (because most people vote on policy not the person as much), you can read more here. They’re a social democratic party (similar in views to people like Bernie Sanders with support for expansion of public services and social justice).

If you want to support her campaign, you can sign up here, and there is an option to say that you’re interested in volunteering or donating to her campaign.

The election isn’t until next May, but I thought I’d spread the word about it now.

If you’re opposed to this oil pipeline, there is only one major party (NDP) you can support in the BC election this May (or the Greens but their chances of winning seats isn’t great). The election takes place May 9th, 2017.

The BC Liberals have shown they aren’t serious about tackling climate change, respecting indigenous rights or protecting the BC Coast.

i love love love how you write neil and andrew, they are literally so in character it hurts... i'm writing a fanfic for the big bang but i have no idea how to write them, thank god they're mostly background characters. do you have any tips tho??

aw thank you so much! i know i write them a little bit softer than they actually are, but that’s a deliberate choice i made (…after election day hahahahahahahaha) bc i’m a wuss and i just want everyone to be happy lol. in my big bang fic they are like anti-soft. it’s bleak.

full disclaimer, this is all my personal reading of andrew & neil and a lot of people write them differently depending on personal taste and interpretation (i highly recommend @ravenvsfox for what i think is one of the truest-to-the-books portrayals of andrew i’ve seen! also @badacts writes an AMAZING neil)

that said here is my advice (this got long so it’s under a cut):

Keep reading

noah fence but not gonna lie that the superbowl felt kind of exactly like election night

This was less awful bc election night didn’t have Lady Gaga or the Schuyler Sisters

Hamilton makes me wish i was american. 2016 made me glad that i am not.

Thank you for asking!

Holy shit a Democrat, Jon Ossoff, might actually win the Georgia 6th this is a fucking west wing episode with the dead candidate and so niño but instead it’s Trump as a president and faulty equipment and ELEVEN REPUBLICANS OUT OF 18 CANDIDATES at the very least this is gonna have the house RUNNING to the left because this is THE GEORGIA SIXTH AND THEY MIGHT LOSE THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED THEY HAVEN’T BEEN DEMOCRAT SINCE FUCKING/NIXON/ FOR THE PAST TWO DECADES REPUBLICANS HAVE WON BY 20-100 PERCENT THAT’S NOT A TYPO

The REASON they’re having a special election is bc the former representative was a Trump appointee AND RIGHT NOW THE DISTRICT IS BLUE

THE HOUSE IS ELECTED EVERY TWO YEARS IF THIS DISTRICT EVEN JUST LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING BLUE NOT EVEN NECESSARILY GOES BLUE. REBUPLICANS ARE GOING TO BE SHitTING THIER PANTS THE GOAL OF EVERY POLITICIAN IS TO BE REELECTED, REGARDLESS OF PARTY

THESE AREN’T PEOPLE THEY CAN CLAIM ARE “HIRED” BY THE DNC THESE ARE THE ACTUAL VOTERS

AND THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, DOESN’T HAVE TO WIN. HE JUST NEEDS TO NOT MONUMENTALLY LOSE

AND IF HE DOES? ALL THE BETTER
