Vital That You Vote Tomorrow, October 2 - Don't Let The Media Lull You Into Thinking The Election Outcome Is Already Decided

October 1, 2003


It is absolutely crucial that you make sure to vote in tomorrow's election, and that you encourage as many people you can to do the same. The media reports have left many thinking that this election's outcome has already been decided. This can lead many to decide not to bother voting, feeling as if it isn't necessary or won't make a difference. DON'T BE LED TO THINK THAT WAY. If everyone does not go to vote, this can dramatically affect the election results.

Many individual races in different ridings across Ontario may well be very close. Every vote counts. Make your plans today for getting to the polling station.

If you need help, contact the campaign office of any candidate in your riding. If you are concerned about possible barriers, phone Elections Ontario's disability hotline. Their contact information is set out below.

If you require para-transit and it is available in your community, call now to book your ride, if you haven't done so already. If you don't have a disability, but you have friends or relatives who do, contact them today. Make sure they plan to vote. Offer them your assistance if they need it. Take a few minutes to call just three people to make sure they vote. Any three people you know. And of course be sure to encourage everyone to think about the parties' positions on disability issues when they decide on their vote.

Finally, make sure you bring all the right documentation with you to vote tomorrow. If you aren't sure what you need, call Elections Ontario to find out.

Don't miss your chance to have your say in who will form the next government in Ontario. USE IT! It's the most important contribution you can make on October 2, 2003 in the campaign for a barrier-free Ontario.
