Van­cou­ver elec­tion re­sults made of­fi­cial

The Miracle - - Civic Election -

The votes have been ver­i­fied and the Van­cou­ver mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion re­sults are of­fi­cial. On Wed­nes­day Van­cou­ver’s chief elec­tion of­fi­cer de­clared the of­fi­cial re­sults of the 2018 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion. The elec­tion ver­i­fi­ca­tion process this year in­cluded re­count­ing more than 57,156 bal­lots from 50 polling sta­tions. The large num­ber of can­di­dates (158) re­sulted in a longer than usual bal­lot which caused pa­per jams in the vote count­ing ma­chines at some lo­ca­tions.“As a re­sult of this sig­nif­i­cant re­view, there are mi­nor vote changes from the pre­lim­i­nary re­sults for many can­di­dates, but the fi­nal re­sults do not change the fi­nal elec­tion stand­ing,” reads a City of Van­cou­ver press re­lease. Once ver­i­fied, the vote to­tals for all can­di­dates went down by be­tween 55 and 170 votes. In the end, mayor-elect Kennedy Ste­wart got 49,705 votes and sec­ond place fin­isher Ken Sim of the NPA got 48,748 — a dif­fer­ence of 957 votes. Source:.van­courier.com
