1873 voters in Nevada County voted in person at a vote center

Returning offices ready for election day

The campaign became aware of the mistake early Wednesday morning after supporters noticed that the information distributed was incorrect, and the campaign subsequently alerted Elections Ontario to their mistake.

That's more than 5.7 million of the 10.2 million eligible to vote, and a milestone for Ontario, which has never had more than 5 million people show up in a provincial election. That's an 18.8 per cent increase from 2014, when an estimated 647,261 voters turned up at advance polls.

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.

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

"For this year we've had 45,000 voters return a ballot at a drop box", Jarboe said.

E-Poll books make it easier and faster for an elector to get a ballot. That's roughly 13 per cent of the total ballots cast.

The number of electoral districts in Ontario has increased from 107 to 124 in 2018 and the change means some voters will be casting ballots in different locations or electoral districts in this election than previously, Elections Ontario said. 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.

The office is also reminding eligible voters, in its frequently asked questions, that they can not take selfies with their ballots.

It's a violation of the Election Act to photograph any completed ballot.

In this vote, many Ontarians didn't wait for election day.

If you missed the deadline to register to vote, thanks to a new law, you can still do so at the Registrar of Voters in person. Voters are reminded to bring these cards and one piece of identification to vote. Information about this can be found HERE.
