Quebecers head to polls, some still unsure
After weeks of campaigning by the leaders of Canada's political parties and their candidates, Quebecers headed to the polls Tuesday, but some told CBC News they decided only at the last minute where to mark their X.
Qaadira Decoteau, who turned out Tuesday to the Jeanne Le-Ber riding in Montreal, told CBC News that the five weeks on campaigning did not give her a clear choice of the six candidates.
"I actually just decided when I got in the booth," she said. "No one really met all my needs."
Decoteau said that, as a young voter, she didn't feel the main candidates addressed her concerns, so she voted for an Independent.
"I know it's a federal election, but I'm really concerned with education, health care and the economy."
Voter Dana Sanford, said she too, decided who she would vote for at the last minute, and felt compelled to cast her ballot.
"I tried to do as much research as I could, but it was still hard to make a decision," she told CBC News. "Because I'm a woman, and women fought hard for us to have the right to vote, so I feel if I don't vote, I wouldn't be doing them justice."
Polls in Quebec opened at 9:30 a.m. and close at 9:30 p.m. ET
