Election Prediction Sites

There are a number of election prediction/strategic voting sites available for this election. I just got emailed a new one, projectdemocracy.ca

It advised me that my riding, Vancouver Kingsway, despite the fact that it was held by NDP incumbent Don Davies, voting NDP may not be my best option. Hmm.

Other sites, many of which have been mentioned elsewhere already, include:

Catch 22 Campaign (strategic voting site pointing out vulnerable conservative- and opposition-held ridings)

Here are some ideas

I suppose I don't need to raise any alarms about Harper on here. But I thought I would get to see some of the flavour of your collective blogs. I will try to be open but I started out as an accountant, am training as a manager, and have always voted on the right (at least until this election). Now that you are all writing hate mail, let me tell you about the other side.

I am a vegetarian, I have planted a small forest by myself. I read a lot and I am probably not all that far politically from a lot of you, it is just there are no politicians who would run on anything close to a platform that I could wholeheartedly support. Sadly, most of you choices are less than satisfactory as well.
