Rodel Ominga, fourth-year student, general degree
I’m too busy to vote. I’ve got school and I’ve got work and I could vote early but we just had elections recently.
Lanaya Rebecca Hooper, first-year student, history
I’m not too busy to vote. I think that if you’re able to vote, you should vote. It’s your responsibility.
Darcy Penner, fourth-year student, politics
I’m not too busy to vote. Voting is an attempt to shape public policy for one of the largest sources of power in the province.
Sam Engelking, co-owner, Casa Burrito
I find myself way too occupied and a few extra weeks would definitely be beneficial to make an informed decision.
Janelle Hebb, education assistant, Shaftesbury High School
To be honest, it doesn’t matter to me because if I’m going to vote, I’m going to vote. Three weeks doesn’t make that big a difference. In fact, it might be better because I’ll have fewer assignments at school.
Eric Stewart, Manitoba Liberal candidate for Wolseley
Personally, no. Out on the campaign trail, I haven’t heard that people are too busy to vote at all.
