First Report of Voter Turnout in Ontario By-Elections - Dismal #onpoli

Via Elections Ontario:

As of July 29, preliminary figures indicated that the following numbers of electors have cast their ballots for the upcoming provincial by-elections:

  • 6430 electors in the Electoral District of Etobicoke—Lakeshore (out of 89,550) - 7.2%
  • 7567 electors in the Electoral District of London West (out of 95,265) - 7.9%
  • 7887 electors in the Electoral District of Ottawa South (out of 86,346) - 9.1%
  • 2924 electors in the Electoral District of Scarborough—Guildwood (out of 68,269) - 4.3%
  • 3460 electors in the Electoral District of Windsor—Tecumseh (out of 84,998) - 4.1%
Total turnout thus far - 6.7%.

The short answer, the turnout is pretty dismal so far. I can't believe we're going to see a huge uptick on August 1. Emails or no.
