Yes Yes I had a valid voter card, Drivers liscence with matching address, passport etc.
I get there and they accuse me of trying to vote twice as my name was already crossed out. It seems my democratic rights have been unsurped by either a clerical error or identity theft.
It took everything I had to not make a scene
Take action. Your loss is every voters loss. I take this type of thing very serious.....let the local paper know...let your local Liberal or NDP Party know about this...BE VOCAL.
Blackout broken: Election results available early online
While Newfoundlanders watched their federal election results start to roll in at 8:30 p.m. local time Tuesday, residents of British Columbia and the Yukon weren't supposed to be able to see those numbers until their own local polls closed three hours later.
But Canadians with an internet connection were among those who could find their way around that particular election rule Tuesday night.
Several blogs and social networking sites that are available across the country posted comments and information about results in Eastern Canada while voters in western regions were still heading to the polls.
And satellite TV beamed Atlantic Canada's results to the West well before the law permits.
Section 329 of the Canada Elections Act bans the transmission of election results from any electoral district where polls have closed to districts where the polls are still open.
That means traditional audio and video broadcasts, websites and blogs aren't allowed to report election results nationwide until all the polls are closed. The blackout was put in place to try to prevent the posted results in the eastern time zones from influencing voters in the West.

Canada needs another Trudeau in politics like it needs another hole in the country's wallet. I wish he had had his a$$ handed to him so he could get out from his father's ego and get a real job.
