Prince Rupert Votes 8-9 PM

Come for the Craft Fair! Stop in for the election. A busy Saturday for the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre is about to wind down as we prepare to learn who Prince Rupert Voters have selected to guide the city and School District for the next four years.

The polls have now closed on the North Coast and election officials will soon tabulate the results, with a quick turn around anticipated for those waiting to learn of the make up the City Council and School District.

To start off our review of the numbers to come, a recap of the Ballots cast volumes since 3 PM today.

Total as of 3 PM-- 3346 (35%)
Total as of 4 PM-- 3625 (38 %)
Total as of 5 PM-- 3871 (41 %)
Total as of 6 PM-- 4057 (43 %)
Total as of 7 PM-- 4179 (44%)

And now, stand by as we await the first of the results to be delivered.

8:25 PM and it's tick, tock, tick, tock, counters, counters you're on the clock!

We're not judging, but it seems that the voting tabulator takes as much time to count as humans do!
