Nation... it's time.

Get out there, and make a difference.

Literally millions of volunteer hours have been spent. Millions of dollars. Millions more in "sweat equity". Promises have been made.

More than that, though, men and women have died so that you can sit there staring at your screen and debate whether or not to vote.

What it all boils down to, in the end, is that these men and women are asking for your consent to be governed. They are asking for the privilege of exercising your franchise.

Make no mistake - at the end of the day, someone will be in charge. Someone will be empowered with the mandate to make changes to your world, on behalf of all Albertans of all ages, those who voted and those who did not.

CHOOSE to participate in the selection of those people. Because whether you vote or stay home, they WILL be in charge tomorrow.

Several races in 2004 were won and lost by a few hundred votes. Some, by less than FIVE VOTES.

All you have to do is mark an "x".

If your answer is "none of the above", just write "The Enlightened Savage" on your ballot.

But don't let others choose the people who will be in power. Participate. This is the only day of the year when the man living in the million dollar home in Pump Hill and the woman living in the subsidized $400-per-month apartment have the same power. They are each "1 voter".

If they don't vote... they lose even that status.

BE the change you wish to see in the world. Cast a ballot.

Results will be posted here as they come in.
