Early estimates show more British Columbians headed to the polls for the 2017 provincial election than in 2013.
Elections BC now estimates voter turnout was approximately 60 per cent. That’s up from the 57 per cent projected on election night.
In 2013, the percentage of eligible voters who voted was 55 per cent.
Elections BC says their estimate is based on the number of voters registered, the number of valid votes cast at both advance and general voting, and the preliminary estimate of absentee ballots cast during the election.
A more accurate voter turnout will be released sometime after May 24.
