Canadians: Do you vote for a party or a candidate?

Dear Canadians, Brits, and other citizens of parliamentary democracies: Inspired by this comment, how important is party affiliation to your vote? In other words, how much of an asshat does your party's parliamentary candidate have to be to force you to switch sides in an election? [more inside]

Can you help me find an official (or at least correct) script/screenplay for Election?

Is there a script or a screenplay for Election that isn't the Third Draft that is floating around? It could be free or for purchase -- anything that is correct. Something official would be best, but even a finalized version would be workable. [more inside]

Polling center PAC question - why didn't the MoveOn guy have to leave?

ElectionFairnessFilter. So i just voted (yay) and noticed something odd - a man in the polling place sitting quietly behind a MoveOn PAC sign. I didn't think we in the US could have anyone inside the polling place advocating a specific voting paradigm (even if I do think it's a good paradigm to support), and so I wasn't surprised when a lady complained and an officious-looking man walked over to talk to the seated gentleman - but after a short conversation, they let him stay. Anyone know what gives here? Why would they not ask him to leave?

What U.S. network will have fair, non-partisan election coverage?

Yet ANOTHER Election Night Question: What network should I be locked into on Tuesday night? I want fairness, either by straight non-partisanship or true balance, good solid analysis of what each state's results mean as we go, and some personality and banter to keep it interesting. ABC? CNN? MSNBC? FOX News? (hah. just kidding about that one.)

Election Night Socializing: TV/Online Immersion v. Human Contact?

ACTUAL HUMAN CONTACT FILTER: Another election-night question, but more specifically: On Tuesday, I have been invited to a few parties, and there are some bands playing election-themed shows around town, but —the question I ask you is— should I even go out? I'm conflicted, as this political stuff is so consuming and I like to dart around on the web and on tv (and yap on metafilter) when things are happening; I've stayed at home during all the debates and primaries stuff, to the growing complaint of friends who invite me out to things. Are any of you going out on Election night? Or is it more fun for political junkies to just sit in front of the opium den of internet and tv? What do you consider more healthy? I know the debates on Metafilter was some of the most fun I've ever had, particularly the Internets moment. Can actual human contact beat that?

Political Playlist

I'm putting together a playlist for an election-results-watching party (Go Kerry!). Any recommendations for songs relating to the current administration?
So far, I've got: Ani DiFranco's 'Self Evident', Saul Williams' 'Pledge of Resistance' and Eminem's Mosh from the recent post. I know I've heard others, but can't seem to find them right now.
Any genre is OK, just curious as to how much I can find, my google-fu doesn't seem up to the task of finding political songs without too much stuff from the Vietnam era.

John Kerry on Iraq

Straight up: Has John Kerry said what he's going to do about Iraq if he's elected? I'm probably voting for him anyway, but I don't remember what he's said specifically about an end strategy.

No-Party Elections?

What happens, if for some reason, say, the Democrat candidates were unable to stand for election (plane crash)? What if both pairs were out? What would happen if they were incapacitated after winning the election and before inaugaration?

Can someone shed some light on Sen. Kerry's previous campaigns?

Last night's debate made me think of something I heard regarding Kerry's senatorial campaign strategy boiling down to banking everything on his endgame (it may have even been in the Blue, but good luck finding that...). Is that true? Can someone shed some light on his previous campaigns?

Iraqi election & our forces there

Iraqi Politics Filter: Does anyone know how the elections in Iraq are going to work? If the Ba'ath party reappeared and wanted to stand, would we let them, or is it only an approved list of parties that are running?

If we don't like the way the election is going, what chance do you think there is that we'll let it go it's course?

If we are asked to leave by the next prime minister, will we go?

Southern Alberta: Am I throwing my vote away by voting NDP?

It's election day here in Canada, and I have still not made my mind up on who I am going to vote for. I am in Southern Alberta, so it is pretty much decided who is going to win here (last poll had the local Conservatives at 60%), Am I throwing my vote away by voting NDP? Or should I vote "strategically" with the second place party (the Liberal party, which I am not a huge fan of - mainly because of Paul Martin), as an "anyone but conservative" vote?

Voting Parties

In Wisconsin, you don't have to declare a party in order to vote in the primary, which has me wondering, since George W. Bush is a lock on the republican side, why don't republicans vote in the democratic party for the person they think is the least likely to win?
