After the completion of the final count, Yens Pedersen of the N.D.P. remains the successful candidate. The final results, including absentee ballots, are shown below:
Turnout, as a percentage of registered voters, was 40.04 percent. In the 2016 general election, turnout as a percentage of registered voters was 57.81 percent.
Back in March, I told you, by way of a 29th Electoral Cycle Communique for Chief Official Agents that, moving forward, we would be placing poll by poll results from by-elections on our website as soon as we can produce them after each event. At that time, I indicated that it would likely take about one month from polling day for this to happen – at present, I see no reason why we would not be able to meet this target. Therefore, you can expect to see poll by poll results from the Regina Northeast by-election by mid-October 2018. If that date should change drastically, I will be in contact with you. I will also be in touch on the day the results are posted online.
Finally, just one more reminder of a few upcoming dates and deadlines.
Finally, while there is no set date attached, candidates and registered political parties are eligible to be reimbursed for audit fees (up to the maximum limit for 2018) associated with the audit of election event returns. As soon as is practical, send the invoice for these audit fees to Jennifer Colin ([email protected]), along with proof of payment, and she will process a request for reimbursement.
