Gregor Robertson casts ballot at Emily Carr Elementary School
It was a family event: the kids are old enough to vote now too.
Mayor Gregor Roberston got his voting done early today. And he made it a family affair.
Robertson cast his ballot at Emily Carr Elementary School on Oak Street, along with his wife, Amy, and their two voting-age children.
"We worked really hard to get out, are hoping for a great turnout and are hoping for a lot of support at the polls," Robertson said.
"I came with two of my children," he said, referring to his son and daughter. "It's their first time voting in a civic election, because they were too young the last time around."
Robertson said that he had "no regrets" about his campaign. When a reporter asked him if the Occupy Vancouver movement has had an impact on his chances of being re-elected, he responded:
"I don't think so. People care about the big issues here in Vancouver."
As Robertson walked inside the school gymnasium, some voters seemed caught off guard to see reporters and television cameras follow behind him.
