B.C. election results: Live, real-time results from the provincial election

Voters across British Columbia headed to the polls on Saturday to take part in the province’s 42nd general election.

Global News had live, real-time results for all 87 ridings once the polls have closed. We had live online results by riding so you could see who will form B.C.’s next government and who won in your riding.

However, a number of ridings were too close to call on election night and will be decided in the coming days.

Global News has profiles for each of the 87 ridings across the province, with an overview, list of candidates, voting history and more.

Want to see what each party promised? We’ve detailed all the leaders’ election pledges in our promise tracker.

Global News’ special election broadcast aired live from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. PT on Global BC, BC1, AM980 CKNW radio, and free on the Global TV App, Amazon Prime Video or Global News YouTube Channel.
