vote more often

If you are a Canadian citizen of voting age you can vote on election day. But why wait?

Before the election has started the political parties have already chosen which issues they will focus on and what positions they will take. If you haven't already voted to say which issues are important and what the best positions are, you've missed your chance to define what the election should be about.

During the election you should be able to vote more than once. Vote on the party platforms - plank by plank. You can vote for these candidates, this platform, that party and that other leader.

After the election hold the government accountable by voting on the legislation itself. You can even propose amendments and vote on those.
