Municipal election 2011: a buzz in the air

The excitement has been building for weeks.

Every day, as I compiled the "What are people tweeting about Surrey" post I saw hundreds of election-related posts. Most of them were from the candidates, a few about issues, and every now and then a whole series about an all-candidates meeting.

Caught up in the frenzy I even created a paper.li product that followed the #sryelxn hashtag, as well as the politicians I had collected on Twitter.

And now, the big day.

I went to Old Yale Road Elementary around 10:15 am. The line up went to the door of the gymnasium, about 20 people or so.

Most seemed a little older than I am, which is solidly middle aged. A lot of grey hair. But, that said, at least a quarter seemed youngish. A few had brought small children with them.

It was a beautiful sunny day, if still a bit cool. A bit of snow stuck in the shady areas from the snowfall a few days ago. There was salt, or some other de-icer, on the outside steps. Good weather has to be a factor in election turn-outs. Why are municipal elections always held in November?

The line moved quickly, and I was registering by 10:20. By 10:25 I was on my way. The line up was steady; still reaching the door of the gym.

 

What were people tweeting about the election?

Here are the tweets using the hashtag #sryelxn for election day, Saturday November 19, 2011:

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
