It's Election Day, Canada. It's the day when every Canadian citizen 18 years or older gets to exercise their right to vote. The six major political parties competing in the 2019 federal election are the Liberal Party, the Conservative Party, the New Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Bloc Quebecois, and the People's Party of Canada.
Voting may seem tedious to some, but the fact that we're allowed to vote should be enough to convince people to do so. Although not everyone believes this, every vote DOES matter.
Please remember that we're lucky enough to live in a country that uses a democratic political system, so voting is you using this system to the fullest!
In past federal elections, the voting turnout for the youngest age group, 18 to 24 years, has been the lowest. To young voters, this year is our chance to vote and give our age group a louder voice! The lower number of voters we have for our age range, the less political parties will work to address our specific needs.
