That's me as well, didn't know what the word was for it, thanks.
I've been an "election-holic" (now a "psephoholic", but forgive me if I use the former term more, as I've been using it longer, and the latter is hard to pronounce, especially with my lisp) since I was 15 years old! I accompanied my parents to the voting locations when I was too young to vote (voting age here is 18 btw), and during provincial elections when the news would broadcast live from the provincial legislature (Winnipeg is the provincial capital) I'd be there to watch the coverage (I even have a tape from an election from about 15 years ago now of the news coverage that shows me in the background.) I stay up always watching the returns, provincial, civic, national, and even this election (my wife has got me interested) - despite that I have lots of work to do (CDs I want to burn, websites to update, and the parent council for my kids school meets tonight)
