It’s election season, and for many, that means frustration on who one should vote for. A site called Vintage Voter aims to take the stress out of election season and bring some humor and nostalgia back into our lives.

Vintage Voter is a blog that has a collection of old photographs of current Prime Minister candidates for Canada. Hilarious pics of Stephen Harper, Michael Ignatieff, Jack Layton, Gilles Duceppe and Elizabeth May can be seen on this site. The collection includes high school yearbook photos, early career photos and the would-be politicians just having a good time and sharing smiles.

Vintage Voter is not only a collection of retro photos, but also a site which aims to get the young crowd eager to vote. It hopes that you don’t vote on these politicians based on their pictures, but they may still be deal-breakers for some. Stats for Retro Politician Albums Trending: Older & Warm
