This is the easy part. If you are already registered to vote, you will be mailed a card indicating where and when you can vote. Or you can find out where to vote here. If you are not registered to vote, you can register to vote prior to election day, or you can bring two pieces of ID to any polling station on May 2nd to register and vote. If you are homeless and stay at a shelter, you can still vote by getting a shelter administrator to attest to your residence there. There really is no excuse not to vote.

The growth and diversity of social media outlets, vote mobs and YouTube activism is the best thing to come out of this federal election. And we think that's something to celebrate. Check out the sites that are informing and inspiring people on their way to the polls. And join the party!...

“We must highlight the negative implications of another Conservative minority government, or worse, a Conservative majority government. Stopping the Conservatives from gaining power in this election will be a win in and of itself.”  ~Maude Barlow~
