  1. Brutal

  2. “Let me take a selfie……”

  3. Did anyone else find it odd/worrisome that pencils were issued with the ballots rather than pens? I wanted to use the pen I happened to have with me but didn’t know if this would spoil the ballot. Was every polling station using pencils? Very interested in replies.

    • Prescott Russel .. PENCILS

    • But Trudeau was allowed to take his whole family in to vote and take unlimited photos for his family album….remember, he makes the rules but he does not follow them

      “Ballots aren’t erased and go directly into the box. The boxes are sealed and only open in the view of campaign representatives from each party” Have they also convinced you there’s such a thing as the tooth fairy?

    • @Slammer I worked the election. I allowed parents to take their kids. It’s not that serious. Plus, votes count for ridings so your individual vote doesn’t technically count

    • @iblockpuncheswithmyface I work the provincial and federal elections.

  4. Use a pencil and don’t take photos

    • Aliens control your thoughts, I own this bridge you can buy, I’m selling it real cheap.

    • But Trudeau was allowed to take his whole family in to vote and take unlimited photos for his family album….remember, he makes the rules but he does not follow them

    • @Slammer Both the rule and your silly complaint are stupid. All the leaders had pictures taken in the polling station they went to you halfwit. If you think Trudeau made that rule you are simple.

  5. Zero accountability in the counting process.

  6. Because the election is rigged
    Selfies are exit polls

      @vomittie I want you to know how im going to laugh at that comment for weeks. The fact that you still think politicians represent the average person or have any control, your delusion amuses me

      Prove it

    • It is rigged!!! I was given a pencil to vote in Toronto while other parts of the city used a sharpie WTF!!! Corruption!!!!!

    • @Fran Roma Corruption? Hmmm… how and why?

  7. So I can tell someone what I voted but there’s no way I could take a picture to prove it. Lol! This only infers that the powers that be want the ability to change votes.

    How many voters were forced to use a pencil

  14. Peasants revolt is considered a vote right? 😂

    Well then there’s photo evidence of far too many “citizens” voting

    • This is total nonsense, they check both your government issue ID and a registration card before one votes. Your garbage is spin for the ignorant and the deluded. Your system has problems, this is not among them.

  16. Lol I still did it

  17. Yet trudeau took a selfie at the polls

    In provincial elections we use sharpies, in fed we use pencils. Nobody questions this?

    Why can’t I take ballot selfies when the PM can go blackface?
