Voting is not only useless, it actually undermines genuine democracy by legitimizing an inherently undemocratic process. During this
election we are encouraging people to eat their ballots by having our chefs develop
delicious recipes. Check out great dishes such as The Ballot Burger, with a side order of
Campaign Literature. Or perhaps you enjoy cheese and would like to
try a Ballot
Fondue. Of course, there are other interesting ways todestroy your ballot...but try not
to wind up in jail...
During the last two Canadian Federal Elections, EBS members were
actually charged with
own ballots. Check out our history, and press releases here.
For those interested in organizing our campaign there is a mailing list to
allow the local groups to coordinate their efforts and exchange ideas and
information. If you want to join
the mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org
with the command "subscribe ebs-l" in the body of the email.
For a taste of surrealism:
Is someone allowed to eat a ballot? is the first question on Elections' Canada FAQ.
For regular updates from the EBS, email
ebs _at_ tao.ca with the subject "me want updates".
Special thanks to DIST for providing us
with a research grant, and
tao for allowing us to squat.

electoral process! Note: Bidding has ended, but you can still

Ballot Society is an international coalition of groups, all organizing
coordinating their efforts. Start up a group in your city, town, school
