253/365 : Civic duty

253/365 : Civic duty

We’re having a federal election this year in Canada, and because of my compromised immune system and that pesky Covid, I have decided to vote by mail for the first time in my life. It was super-easy to register to vote by mail, and this morning my “voting kit” arrived in the mailbox.

There’s a write-in ballot, which goes into an inner envelope, which then gets sealed and put into an outer envelope which I need to sign and date (in order to attest that I’m a legal elector). The outer envelope then goes into a self-addressed and stamped mailing envelope which I drop into the mailbox. Easy peasy.

I don’t know if I’ll ever go to vote in person again…

If you’re a Canadian citizen and want to vote by mail, there’s still time to apply. Just register online before 18:00 Eastern time on Tuesday, September 14.
