  • Record Number Mail Ballots Could Delay San Diego County Results

Unofficial results now indicate that 58 per cent of eligible voters in the province cast their ballot, including those who voted by mail, at returning offices, in hospital, through home visit, during advance voting and on election day.

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

The Progressive Conservatives handily formed a majority government in Thursday's election, winning 76 seats with 40.4 per cent of the popular vote.

This year saw the addition of Ontario's new ballot machines.

Des Granges said e-poll books help process voters, while tabulators "help automate the counting process for the poll workers".

Karen Rhea, the assistant registrar of voters, said the current turnout is 22.15% of registered voters.

Royal newlyweds attend Queen's birthday parade
She and Harry arrived at Buckingham Palace in the back of a vehicle before switching to their carriage for the big occasion. Over 1,400 soldiers took part in the parade to mark the Queen's official birthday.

But Wrightsman was still able to cast her ballot the old-fashioned way at the voting center. Danny Alvarez, the top-vote getter in the race, died a day after the May 22 Primary, and Karen Faulkner, the candidate who received the third highest number of votes, is suing to be on the General Election ballot. During Early Voting, the Board of Elections encourages voters to visit our website - www.777vote.org - to view the wait time scrollbar and for voting locations and information.

"The votes will be counted after election officials verify the voter registration and confirm the voter has not yet voted elsewhere in the current election".

It's also the highest turnout for Ontario since 1999, when 58.3 per cent of eligible voters turned out to cast their ballot.

Volunteers with the Des Rosiers campaign confirmed on Wednesday night that they were the source of the incorrect information, which they say was the result of a postal-code error on a piece of campaign literature mailed out to voters.

Absentee ballot application forms are available at the County Election Board office, 131 W. 13th St.in Ada.

However, it's important to keep in mind there are still about 30,000 votes to be processed-and there's even more that can come in by Friday.
