Want to be part of the NDP leadership decision and aren't quite sure how to go about it? Well, rabble.ca's got answers for you!

First of all, you need to be a member in good standing and need to have received the NDP membership voting package. That will contain a Voter ID and PIN number that will allow you to vote online.

The deadline for advance voting is March 23 and there are only a few hours left for advance voting. You must vote online by 11 a.m. Friday, March 23 if you want to vote in a one-time preferential ballot. If you haven't already voted online or mailed in your ballot, you can still virtually attend the convention.

You'll need to be ready to vote throughout the day in each round of balloting as they occur, starting with the first ballot on Friday at 5 p.m. You can vote from any computer or smartphone, from anywhere, because you'll need to be following the convention closely to participate in each round of balloting.

The site to vote online is: http://leadership2012.ca. Sign into the site with the Voter ID and PIN provided to you with the voting package you received in the mail.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
