Final Count Complete

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 24, 2017

VICTORIA – Final count for the 41st Provincial General Election is complete in every electoral district in the province.

At the conclusion of final count the election results were as follows:

BC Liberal Party 43
BC NDP 41
BC Green Party  3

Voting results for each electoral district by party and candidate are available on the Elections BC website at http://electionsbcenr.blob.core.windows.net/electionsbcenr/GE-2017-05-09_result.html.

There will be no automatic judicial recounts. The district electoral officer must apply for a judicial recount if the difference between the top two candidates is less than 1/500 of the total ballots considered, or if there is a tie. No electoral districts meet this criteria.

A voter, candidate or candidate’s representative can apply to the Supreme Court of British Columbia for a judicial recount on the basis that errors were made in the acceptance or rejection of certification envelopes or ballots, or on the basis that ballot accounts are not correct.

Applications for a judicial recount in an electoral district can be made up to six days after the conclusion of final count in that district.
