Canada Election Ballot 2019

As usual, I voted in the Canadian Parliamentary election which is noteworthy as 2019  was the first federal election to allow ex-patriates to vote from abroad.

Voters (including me) voted in the riding (jurisdiction) of their last permanent address in Canada – this was a little confusing as i’ve had a variety of addresses (mail drops, crash pads, temp rentals, forwarding services and the like) but in the end, registered and voted in Vancouver Centre (West End etc).

Note: The candidate whose name i wrote in (using my nicest writing) was not successful and the many-time incumbent Hedy Fry won (again) adding to the Liberal party minority government which will be officially formed when parliament returns to session.

The ballot arrived in a speedily after my online registration in a DHL courier envelope with various return and security envelopes and instructions.

Regardless, i filled out the ballot and mailed it back to Ottawa.

Whatcha think?
