`VAST MAJORITY' TO BE COUNTED BY WEDNESDAY
Almost one million mail-in ballots will not be opened until Tuesday. A clutch of close-run ridings, where mail-in ballots could prove crucial to the result, may have to wait days for a winner to be declared. Elections Canada expects “the vast majority” of the 800,000 mail-in ballots to be counted by Wednesday. Before local elections agents begin opening postal ballots on Tuesday morning, the ballots will be verified to ensure voters have not sent in multiple ballots or already voted in person.
