Some Turn Out Stats for the 2013 BC Election

It will be some months till have have all the final numbers.   I have to estimate the final numbers for 2013 because Elections BC is not reporting the rejected ballots yet.   I am estimating a higher rejected ballot rate for the 2013 election because of the increase in special ballots.  In 2005 and 2009 about 6% of special ballots were rejected but only 0.3% for the regular ballots

Election     2005       2009       2013
EDay       1,476,076  1,258,880  1,252,393 est
Advance      201,833    290,220    381,861 est   
Special       96,330    102,464    184,013 est
Rejected      11,926     11,025     15,216 est
Total Vote 1,774,269  1,651,567  1,833,483 est  

We had a further decline in election day voting in 2013 with close to 31% of the ballots being cast as advance or special ballots.   In 2009 this was 24% and in 2005 17%.

With the final vote counting done, here are the turn outs as a percentage of registered voters on April 23rd 2013 and we had 57.85% of the registered voters cast a valid ballot

This is corrected from earlier in the day, a couple of lines were mixed up
