I would argue that strategically voting makes more sense for NDP and Liberal supporters because their platforms are closer to each others than they are to the Conservatives who are further right.

Every single party has promised to grow the economy in some form or another, what makes the conservatives a guarantee and the others unrealistic?
Well, it is already happening (a surplus that is)

Voting ABC is voting against harpers policies. Most of the things harper is for the Libs/NDP are against. I'm a Liberal supporter but in district the lib candidate is in 4th place. The con is someone who gratuated from a non accredited bible in Texas. The Greens are in 3rd but have no change of winning so my only choice is the NDP. Anyone voting con should look at all the con candidates and see if find one that would make a good cabinet minister.

Now lets look at the issues.

Economy: harper has been terrible for the economy. My family owns a small bussiness and we has made our lives harder.

Pipeline: harper will never get a pipeline built. Just because someone is pro pipe does not mean they don't want the environment protected. If he would of come out and said we are changing/strengthening environmental laws so we will have the safest pipelines in the world he would have lat lots of support from people in the middle. He instead weakened environmental laws. The next president of the US will be a democrat and will not allow a pipe threw the US with harper in power.

Military: Bombing ISIS is all for show. We could have helped in other ways but harper wanted to look tough. The problem with ISIS has gotten worse but Canadian bombing have decreased since the election. Probably because harpers afraid if a plane goes down during the election he will lose votes.

Vets: Military vets hate him and are suing him.

Hundreds of Canadian university professors are condemning the campaign strategy of Stephen Harper's Conservative Party, which they allege has turned, in the last weeks of the election, to mongering fear and hate in order to win votes.

In an open letter, signed by over 600 academics from a wide array of disciplines and published this morning in the Ottawa Citizen, the scholars state that the Conservative campaign has "flagrantly crossed the line" with its messaging about "barbaric cultural practices" a term the letter claims is specifically tailored to play on bigotry without sounding bigoted.

C'mon we are Canadian we are better than this. This type of Racist bigot politics has no place in our society. I go to many car meets and meet amazing people of all colors it's what makes this Country great, this Politics by the Conservatives is just garbage. Please get out and Vote and show how great this Country can be.

I have a question - i emailed elections Canada but they haven't replied.

We moved about 2 weeks ago, and the voter cards were mailed to the old address - just picked them up yesterday. Obviously the address shown on the cards is wrong now, but we don't have any bills or anything mailed to the new address yet - it may come sometime next week, not sure yet.

Do I just show up on voting day and tell them what happened? Which voting station do I have to go to? My licence still shows the old address (the ones the voter cards were mailed to) - still haven't received the sticker yet from ICBC.

You can just go onto the Elections Canada website and fill out a form that addresses your change of... er, address. I just did it for myself a couple days ago. There is a deadline for how late you can fill it out, however.

I'm actually leaning towards the Liberals and I've always been a Conservative voter. As my buddy said, Trudeau is the smartest of the bunch. We might think of having another kid and the 18 months Harper proposes is appealing but I don't think Harper the man to take us out of this recession. Frankly, we just need new blood in government, Harper's had 10 years and it's time for him to move on.

Good luck with that. Harper has shown he has little respect if at all for intelligence. His government has actively silenced scientists and destroyed valuable data. When the profits of private sector cronies takes priority, facts become the enemy.

If what LOMAC suggested doesn't work you can go in and vote on a Special Ballot for your old riding. A vote is still a vote even if it's not where you currently reside.

I'm in Ontario right now and voted for my BC riding by a Special Ballot. Came in, I wrote in who I was voting for in my riding, sealed the envelpe and EC mails it to my riding's EC office. No pre registration needed in the area you are just show up.

I've been a lifetime CPC supporter until the last few years. This year I voted Liberal. Justin has really started to shine int he last month or so and in my opinion really found his voice as a leader.

Listening to an NDP funded liberal party slam advert on the radio while you read about Mulcairs newfound interest in a Lib/NDP coalition government

- Priceless

I bet a coalition looks pretty good now that your party is on the outs, you donkey.

Trudeau or Harper, I'll be happy either way.

I'm a tried and true Green supporter; this year, though, I voted strategically. I don't feel good about it but Trudeau would be an excellent leader and Harper needs to go.

My thoughts, as usual MB are with you on this one. Voted today. Would have preferred to vote green but Trudeau has been quite charismatic this election and I hope his government can get us on the right track. No more fear mongering, racist tactics, disregard for the environment and social programs is the Canada I know and love, and I'm really missing it.

I think there's a law that allows your employer to go vote during work hours.

It's shocking to see the number of us defecting from our parties of choice to Justin Trudeau's Liberals.
