30000 more votes to be counted in local election

Returning offices ready for election day What you need to know for voting on election day in Guelph
Patty Aguilar | 10 June, 2018, 00:18

Election day is upon Ontario, with voters heading to the polls to choose their next provincial government.

As of Thursday afternoon, the county election office had received more than 86,000 ballots out of 166,592 registered voters, a almost 52 percent voter turnout, and the office will likely receive more mail-in ballots on Friday to add to the count (if they were postmarked by Election Day).

This is an increase from the 51.3% of eligible voters who cast their ballot during the 41 general election.

"We are proud that our measured and principled approach to modernization made voting even easier for many electors across the province while maintaining the integrity and security of our elections".

"The 42 general election saw a transformation in Ontario's electoral process thanks to technology in the polls". An e-Poll book is an electronic version of paper voters' lists.

When you head into the voting booth, you can mark an X for your preferred candidate or you can decline the ballot. Because ballots are non-forwardable, election officials are reaching out to remind voters to update their voter registration if they have moved or are planning to move. While Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones will undoubtedly come in first place, his percentage of the total votes casts could change.
