I voted in the advance poll. It seems that a lot of us did. 29 per cent more than usual.
I have wondered what that early turnout heralded. The Globe's Gary Mason thinks he knows:
“I voted in the advance poll because I just wanted this thing over with,” a friend told me on the weekend. “A group of us all did. It’s been the most depressing election campaign I can remember.”Hey, I think he's on to something. That's why I went to the advance poll. I too just wanted the damned thing over with. I've never experienced an election this dismal and dreary with a slate of such second-rate leader material to choose from. It's a real shit-show, folks. They're all shooting at slow-moving targets and no one is scoring a hit.
