Polling booths needed at GM Place

November 16th, 2008 · 3 Comments

While people were wringing their hands over potentially mediocre voter turnout, Vancouver’s downtown was packed tonight!

I had to drive downtown to get to CKNW for our two-hour show, where I’m now sitting with the full team of pundits and reporters. The streets were filled with people leaving the hockey game and it felt like a real city.

So there’s my suggestion for the next election — put up voting booths at the hockey game.

  • Uhhhhhh……

    Think that just might skew the demographic a little.

    We voted at the Chinese Cultural Centre at about 7:30, after the hockey game, and it was completely dead. However, poll workers there said it had been very busy there earlier in the day.

    I wonder if the numbers at the advance polls didn’t herald a high turnout, but simply spread an average turnout over more days…
