Broadbent Institute's 'Can't Wait' Video Is The Funniest Get Out And Vote Message We've Seen

These people are dropping everything, EVERYTHING to vote.

The Broadbent Institute really, REALLY can't wait to get out and vote.

The left-leaning think tank, which is named after founder and former NDP leader Ed Broadbent, released a video on YouTube Thursday that shows people dropping absolutely everything to go vote.

It was released just one day before advance polls opened on Friday, ahead of the election on Oct. 19.

The humourous video, titled "Can't Wait," shows people in a hospital room, an office, and even apparently in mid-coitus dashing out the door and heading to the polling station.

It comes as Marc Mayrand, Canada's chief electoral officer, sees increased early voting activity, CBC News reported.

He said more people are mailing in ballots, voting from other countries and lining up to cast their choices on campuses than in previous elections.

"This week in the first three days we had 42,000 students who voted," Mayrand said.

So maybe the folks at Broadbent aren't the only ones who can't wait to do their part for democracy.
