Tutoring social studies, one is compelled to take voting a little more seriously. The tutor shares his voting experience of the BC provincial election, May 9, 2017.
In my post from October 13, 2015, I describe my experience voting in that federal election. Today, May 9, 2017, is BC’s provincial one. I voted in it, too.
On voting day, kids still need to be driven to school, meal prep still needs to be done…nothing else changes. There’s just one more thing to do – vote. (Many of us have come to take voting for granted, even though it truly is a critical right that has been earned by the sacrifice of thousands of lives.)
Our local poll opened at 8am; my wife and I went there with our kids, en route to school. There was no lineup; we went straight to the voting station and were out again five minutes later. It couldn’t have been more convenient.
The ease with which we voted was only because of the election personnel who received us. I’d say there were twenty at our poll. Thank you to all the election workers who make voting not only possible, but convenient and pleasant.
As for the election results – we’ll see. They might be worth a post:)
