Voters overwhelmed by issues: expert
Politically minded people are making the push to get a healthy voter turn-out today, but University of Saskatchewan political studies professor Joe Garcea doesn't think everyone will focus on what matters.
"In many cases they actually forget the issues, especially if there are too many of them."
Garcea has found that people tend to vote on what leader they personally like and relate to, rather than on policy platforms and promises made.
He thinks voter turn out will come down to one major issue for the New Democrats, and one for the Saskatchewan Party.
"For the Sask Party there's complacency, for the NDP there's the danger of people being disheartened, and wondering if their voting will make a difference."
For what role issues of policy do play in voter minds, Garcea listed potash royalties, labour and education as the hot-button issues of the election.
