As of 5pm on Tuesday May 23, the counting of the absentee votes is still incomplete.
The most highly vulnerable seat, Comox-Courteney is still “in progress,” with the day-end tally (updated at 5pm) was a difference of 101 votes in favour of the NDP Candidate, Ronna-Rae Leonard.
Following close on her heels is Liberal. Jim Benninger. Earlier in the day, the 2pm “in progress” report showed Benninger with a 3 vote lead.
So, it can still go any way. The counting will continue tomorrow.
And again, a recount will be automatically triggered if any riding after the final count is within 1/500th of the total ballots considered.
So far, the popular vote breakdown looks like this:
- Liberals: 40.38%
- NDP: 40.25%
- Greens: 16.85%
- Other: 2.53%
You can follow this document from ElectionsBC for the live breakdown. SPN will publish the results once we know then.
