Two Days of Advance Polling

As of yesterday 5% of the registered voters in BC had voted. In 2005 after two days the number was 3.5%. The hours for advance voting are longer this time and there has been a trend happening to make it easier for people to vote other than on the general election day. Taking that into mind, I am not sure there is much to indicate more interest in voting this time around.

Within the province wide results, there huge variations in the ridings. The lowest turn out has been in Vancouver Hastings with 2.3%. The top end is in Boundary Similkameen with 8.77% having voted.

Comox Valley has had the most people vote with 3998 or 8.37% of the registered voters.
