Record number of mail ballots could delay primary results

Jessica Pellerin, a spokesperson for Elections Ontario, confirmed on Wednesday that information distributed in the riding "may be incorrect", and reiterated that voters should check directly with Elections Ontario if they are unsure about where to vote.

Unofficial results now indicate that 58.0% 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.

Some saw the now-defunct "Precincts Reported" tab at "100%" on the county voting page and believed the numbers to be final, even though that would have meant a voter turnout of just 17 percent in an election format created to increase participation.

Why Entrepreneurs Carry Business Cards
You will have to wait for them to visit your website or store later and this can mean they’ve already forgotten about you. If you succeed in creating a memorable business card, you don’t just connect deeper with the person you gave the card to.

If you don't know where to vote, you can look up your polling place online by clicking on "Find your polling station" under the Related Links. That's roughly 13 per cent of the total ballots cast.

Most of the vote centers were open the week before the election, giving voters the flexibility to cast their ballot anywhere.

The last time voter turnout was this high was in 1999 - at 57.8 per cent - when Mike Harris was re-elected to a second majority government. That's not a true representation on election night.

The voter information card, that you should have received in the mail by now, and a piece of identification with your name on it is all you need.
