Ontario election 2014: How to vote for ‘none of the above’ — without spoiling your ballot

Ontario, today is the day that we vote! But what if you feel that none of the candidates share the same views as you do ? Instead not voting at all, choose the option to “decline voting”

Some may wish by this action — or inaction — to send a message of frustration with the available choices. But face it: Don’t vote, and you’re more likely to be labelled apathetic than a conscientious avoider.

There is, however, a way to get your “none of the above” choice recognized. Not by spoiling your ballot with happy faces in all the white circles — again, open to misinterpretation of your motives — but by following Ontario’s formal procedure for declining to vote.
