I am here to say though, that with all of its flaws, I will take the Canadian way of voting over that of other countries. During the past US election, much was made of how voter suppression played an important part in how the decision was made. In some states, only one voting place was designated for early balloting for each county. Harris County (metropolitan Houston) covers an area that is 5/6ths the size of Prince Edward Island. In the county, 4.7 million people live. Yet state lawmakers there said there could be just one advance voting station for the whole county. Immigrant voters, Latino voters, and African American voters still find it hard to register to vote in many portions of the country. Some law makers are trying to suggest that mail in votes not be counted- even though the states have already been using mail in ballots for years. Stories of people standing in line for 11 hours to vote flood the internet. The electoral college also means that a person's vote may not be counted. Is it any wonder why even in this election that seemed so important, only 150,000,000 votes will be cast in a country with 330,000,000 residents.
