Gasping For Votes
2015 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin

FALSE ALARM! This is NOT TRUE, I was fooled by a submission in my slush pile to the parody "news" site, Le Journal de Mourreal. Will remove this story on September 15th.

(19 October 2015, Canada) A contentious issue in Canada during the 2015 elections was the question of the faceless voter. Whether or not a person should be allowed to vote with a concealed face was inciting passions throughout the country! In the weeks leading up to October 19, scattered protesters covered their heads in various clever ways to attract the attention of the media. On Federal Election Day itself, many joined the protest and hid their faces at the polls.

In Montreal, a 24-year-old voter took the blue ribbon by appearing at his polling station with a plastic bag over his head! During the 45-minute wait the protestor fainted, leading to death from "respiratory complications." He did not reproduce AND he did not vote, resulting in a double elimination.
