While the online election process was slow to offer results Tuesday evening, after the close of voting at 8 pm, some numbers were released.
The unofficial voter turnout numbers are as follows:
- Total number of eligible voters 115,784
- Total ballots cast 52,088
That means Sudbury’s voter turnout was only 45% in this municipal election, in spite of the online balloting that meant people could vote from anywhere, on computers, tablets, smart phones or in person at a voting centre.
The city says the official results will be released once they have been certified by the City Clerk.
During the extended voting period approximately 8,000 voters (7%) were able to cast their electronic ballots.
