FSU takes the pain out of voting
The FSU will be hosting a forum for the federal candidates running in the London-Fanshawe riding on Wednesday, January 18 between 11am — 12pm/1pm — 2pm in Forwell Hall.
Dan Mailer will represent the Conservative Party, Dave McLaughlin will represent the Green Party, Glen Pearson will represent the Liberal Party, Irene Mathyssen will represent the New Democratic Party and Rod Morely will represent the Progressive Canadian Party.
In addition to the debate, Fanshawe students will also have the opportunity to ask questions and talk to the candidates about the issues surrounding the election.
The All Candidates Forum is an opportunity to learn more about each candidate and their party's platform, which could potentially sway votes during the last critical week of the election.
The FSU has insured all students will have the opportunity to cast their ballot this year by supplying an official polling station in Peregrine House Residence, or S-building, on the day of the federal election, January 23.
All residence students, who are over 18 and a Canadian citizen, are eligible to vote for candidates running in the London-Fanshawe riding at the S-building polling station from 9am to 9:30 pm, as well as all other students who reside within the boundaries of the riding.
The FSU also supplied revision agents at both Falcon and Peregrine Houses to register students from 5:30 —8pm on Thursday, January 12. Students can also register the day of the election at the Peregrine polling station; just bring one piece of government certified photo identification and proof of your London address, such as a bill or letter with your name and address.
Students can also register at the Elections Canada office located at 1700 Dundas.
Students can call Elections Canada at 1 800 463-6868 or online at www.elections.ca to find where their closest polling station is located.
