This is the first local election I have voted in for Surrey. Since I was 18- I was a part of Langley Township. Now I am choosing a party in a municipality that I have only been paying attention to for about a year. In this year, I have already seen some things I feel needs changes.
Voting was easy. I showed up at the nearby elementary school, showed my id and proceeded to fill out the ballot. In Surrey, there are coalition, teams, and groups that have banded together to garner votes. On the ballot, it shows which candidate is with each group. That made it so much easier to vote.
Voting is important in every election. From choosing a mayor to choosing the leader of the country and everyone who helps out. I’m hoping to see my voice heard and we shall see which way my municipal election goes.
