The voting is done in B.C.’s 2020 provincial election and Global News has projected an NDP majority government, though there’s plenty left unsettled due to a massive glut of mail-in ballots.
Three parties are projected to have won seats, while the BC Conservative party was shut out, though appeared to have played spoiler in at least a few ridings.
As of Sunday, a Global News decision desk has not projected a winner in a number of close ridings.
But we do have data from Elections BC on where things stand at this point. We’ve used the unofficial results to highlight some of the most interesting numbers to come out of this year’s unprecedented election.
Races too close to call

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots were requested across B.C. this election. As mail-in ballots cannot be counted until after election night, this may change these numbers.
