Overheard: Reasons Not to Vote

Why not?


Today is the final voting day for Kingston municipal elections. These past weeks of campaigning and debates have sparked heated conversation on campus but left others uninterested in the democratic process.

Here are some overheards about why:

Girl in Mac-Correy Cafeteria to friend:

“I would vote, but it’s just so complicated.”

Girl walking on University with friend:

“My polling station is the Athletics and Recreation Centre. Didn’t they tear that down last year?”

Guy outside of Kingston Memorial Centre (voting station), with female friend:

“They made me walk all the way here? I don’t even want to vote now.”

Guy at Johnson and University:

“Fuck voting! Fuck the system!”
