Completing the count of election ballots takes thousands of workers, working across the province, to report the results from every polling place.
After the polls close on Election Day, ballot boxes are opened and the count is completed. Results are then reported from each polling location to the returning offices, which are immediately uploaded here for public viewing.
In the days following Election Day, returning office staff recount all the ballots to verify the results. These confirmations are then reported as official results and released to the public, with the winning candidates officially declared. This is known as the Official Announcement of the Results and takes place on the 10th day after Election Day.
