Kathy Dunderdale is urging people to cast a ballot Tuesday, regardless of their political stripe.
"It is so important to vote," she said as the PC bus returned from Bay Roberts on the Trans Canada Highway Tuesday.
"There are so many places in the world that don't have the right and privilege of determining who is going to govern them and to have a voice in what happens in their country, in shaping what happens in their country. And we have that right."
The Tory leader added that many people made sacrifices for that right to exist.
"It doesn't matter who you're supporting. It doesn't matter at the end of day in terms of the overall democratic exercise. Vote, it's so important to do."
If voter turnout is low Tuesday, and Dunderdale is successful in her bid to be elected premier, she said a strategy will be put in place to increase turnout at the polls in the next election.
