The other thread kind of got derailed, so I'm posting my new reminder as a new thread. Voting is open until tomorrow night (Sunday, June 1) so get your say on approving the first Council of Wondercafe2. The slate is right on the ballot or in the OP of the thread where we announced the vote:

Please review it (the first draft is still up so you can compare) and then go to the Survey Monkey link below to vote:
Voting will close at midnight, Thursday, May 15, 2014 (ie. You have until end of day Wednesday to vote).
WonderCafe2 governance is based on a council model. Council represents the Wondercafe2 community and is responsible for day-to-day running of the site. Council’s membership consists of the administrators, moderators, and treasurer.

The polls have closed, the ballots are counted, the scrutineers have signed off on the result. Now there is only thing left to do. Publicize the results. And for this ballot, no political careers were at stake (Bonjour, Mme. Marois).

I've seen an article or two about how the new identification rules for voting affected rural Canadians and students. Two thirds of the Dalhousie student population that came out to vote were turned away from the polls because they didn't have the proper proof of residence.
Did any of you have problems voting? Was everyone aware of what they needed to have with them, or do you think Elections Canada could have used their $9 million+ better?
