The very singular custom of voting

It’s that time again; a time in which it’s worth reflecting on the practice of voting itself.

1. Please see section 53 of the Ontario Elections Act which specifies the method for declining a ballot (essentially saying “none of the above”). The more citizens that do this, the more it sends the message that the whole system needs an overhaul.

2. I submit Alain Badiou’s thoughts for your assessment.

Badiou, Alain. 2002. “Philosophical considerations of the very singular custom of voting: an analysis based on recent ballots in France.” Theory and Event 6:3.
