Here's When Election Results Will Start Coming In Across Canada

It's Election Day In Canada, and if you're wondering when election results will start to come in, you may be surprised to hear that it could take a few days.

According to Elections Canada, all ballots except for mail-in ballots will be counted on election night, and preliminary results will be posted right away.

Due to a variety of factors involving mail-in ballots, including the amount received this year, the reporting of those votes might not be ready until Wednesday, September 22. And due to the high volumes of special ballots received this year, it may take four days to get everything counted, according to Elections Canada.

If you want to watch the results of the election live, you can keep do so either online, by television, or by radio.

And if you still need to cast your vote and need a way to get there, Uber is offering discounts to get you to and from the polling stations.

The Canadian federal election was officially called as a minority victory for Justin Trudeau over two weeks ago, but one of the country's ridings has only just been formally decided.

The riding of Chateauguay-Lacolle near Montreal was finally called on Thursday, October 7, for the Liberals in a nail-biting finish that saw the winner decided by just 12 votes.
