Off With The Old...?
Today is the last day to vote for the National Parliamentary Election.
The candidates had their final chance to speak out last night. This is the candidate for the Democratic Party in our district. During the election period, the exits around the stations are filled with supporters and staff, even the candidates themselves, asking the poeple to vote. It's pretty much a fiesta.
This election is especially festive, seeing as the Democratic Party may have a chance at ousting the long ruling Liberal Democratic Party. If this happens it'll be a very big change. Or not. You never know with the politics here in Japan.
We'll just have to see how it turns out!
