A poll aboutgoing to the polls...

Hiho,

Poll #1058467 A Poll about going to the polls

Canadians only: How, traditionally, have you most often decided who to vote for in provincial elections?

I always vote for the same party.
6(8.5%)
I determine which party's platform and policies *currently* reflects my own personal views, and vote for their rep in my riding
15(21.1%)
I vote for the person running for the party whose current leader I like the best
1(1.4%)
I look into the candidates running in my riding and vote for the one I think will best represent my interests. Party affiliation is secondary
5(7.0%)
I am Canadian, but I don't/can't vote.
1(1.4%)
I am not Canadian
43(60.6%)

Non-Canadians only: How, traditionally, have you most often decided who to vote for in state elections (or whatever your local equivalent is to provincials)?

I always vote for the same party.
9(10.2%)
I determine which party's platform and policies *currently* reflects my own personal views, and vote for their rep in my area
14(15.9%)
I vote for the person running for the party whose current leader I like the best
1(1.1%)
I look into the candidates running in my area and vote for the one I think will best represent my interests. Party affiliation is secondary
40(45.5%)
I don't/can't vote.
8(9.1%)
My country has no real equivalent to provincial elections
1(1.1%)
I am Canadian
15(17.0%)


The reason I ask this is that Ontario, the province where I live, is having a referendum to change the way elections take place. And really, the question of "do people vote for a person or a party" is at the heart of determining if the new proposed system is more fair than the traditional way. More details can be found here.

CU,
Andrew
