It seems more people are turning out this election to cast their vote early.
The first two days of advance voting on April 29 and 30 saw a total of 230,000 voters cast ballots.
Elections BC Communications Manager Andrew Watson says that’s a major increase from the 2013 Election.
“Voters are voting at advance voting more often than they have in the past. In 2013, the total number of advance votes cast was around 20 per cent of the total votes cast. That’s up from five or six per cent from the mid-90s.”
He says each day over 100,000 people cast their votes, handily exceeding previous statistics.
“First day of advance voting in 2013 saw about 106,000 turn out, for 2013 the second day was about 81,000. But when comparing the two elections, it’s important to keep in mind there are two extra days for advance voting.”
And those numbers are expected to increase even further, as the last round of advance voting takes place Wednesday to Saturday this week.
