It’s election day in B.C. and polls are now closed for general voting in the 2021 federal election.
Polls were open in B.C. from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Most polls reported seeing a steady stream of people coming in to vote on Monday but there is also expected to be a large amount of mail-in ballots.
Those will not start being counted until Tuesday, Elections Canada confirmed.
Anyone in line to vote when polls close will still be able to cast their vote if they do not leave the line.
There are 42 federal ridings in B.C.
On Monday night, Global News will have robust coverage online, on social media and on the air — through both television and radio broadcasts. Starting at 4 p.m. on BC1 and at 7 p.m. on Global BC, right after the News Hour, our national anchors, reporters and panel of experts will break down the results as they come in and look at what it means for Canadians.
Starting at 10 p.m., Global BC will continue with a local election show, focusing on the results and what the election means to British Columbians.
