Words on the street: We asked Haligonians if they plan to vote on Saturday

'Oh frigimajiggers, I know there’s an election going on!'


Municipal election day is almost here. The lawn signs have been posted, the debates have been fought, the doors have been knocked on. But the most important question is still unanswered: who will go out and vote?

In 2012, less than 37 per cent of eligible voters cast a ballot in the municipal election, according to the Voter Engagement in Halifax study. After months of campaigning and efforts to increase voter turnout, will more people go to the polls on Saturday?

The Signal took to the streets of Halifax to find out:

The Halifax election website has a list of voting locations and other information for voters. The voter helpline phone number is (902) 490-8683.
