Tomorrow, you have a responsibility to go out and vote in Alberta's general election. This small, simple act of democracy, which requires no great measure of your time and thought, is the bedrock of our nation's success and the means by which we secure our common future.
We all know that it's easy to stay at home. It's easy to simply not show up to the ballot box. Nobody has to know you didn't vote, after all. And you might even think it's more productive: how could one person possibly make a difference?
Here's the thing: decisions are made by those who show up. And you're not just one person. In 2012 almost half of eligible voters in this province chose not to cast their ballot. Can you imagine what would have been different if each of them had voted?
Apathy is boring. The outcome of this election doesn't have to be. Vote tomorrow.
