Valimised 2007!

Today I'm going to exercise my civic duty and cast my ballot in the Estonian elections. Pre-elections are taking place in Toronto (and other places for valiseestlased) in the next week in anticipation of the big day in March. Toronto usually casts about 2500-3000 votes which isn't bad considering most people here are even less knowledgeable and uninspired to vote then back in Eesti. Valiseestlased tend to vote for Isamaaliit since they're considered nationalistic enough for people here and issues such as wages, health care and so on aren't as important to many since it doesn't affect them personally. I don't think this is a great thing since these are important issues in Eesti but at least Kesk won't get many votes (any votes?) from Torontonians.

So I assume you're not voting for Keskerakond, who did you choose out then?

No KESK votes from me.

I'm supporting the Sotsdemokraadid this year. Partly because Liisa's dad is running in Tallinn #1 and partly because I believe strongly in a strong social system (coming from "socialist" Canada it's bred into my bones).
