I think we’re neighbours. One of his pollsters came to our place the other night, but I had to turn him away because we just moved (back) to the ‘hood.
We’re in Gouin, the riding of Françoise David.
But A. couldn’t vote for her. A.’s voter card said “The list of electors shows no name at this address.” Of course she only found out when she opened the envelope in the polling station, and they couldn’t do anything for her.
Very strange because she has voted many times before.
Françoise David lost with 26% to 37% for the PQ candidate, so it wouldn’t have had much influence unless many other people received empty election cards.
BTW I just found out that André Boisclair ran (and won with 54%) in our riding in 2003. He apparently moved.
Michel: This isn’t my apartment, but I’m just up the street so we quite likely are neighbours. If I was the type to put up election signs, though, this is the one I’d have picked.
Mare: That is disconcerting, to say the least. I have a friend who has spolied every election ballot she has ever cast. This time, she drew happy faces in all the empty circles. Needless to say, I respect her immensely.
Because she believes it’s important to vote.
