Vote counting continues today in 13 ridings across the country with narrow margins between the leading candidates — in some cases as narrow as 100 votes or less.
Elections Canada says it will be a few days before the country can get a complete picture of the 2021 federal election's voter turnout and final results.
The agency says it needs a few more days to complete the results because it's still counting local special ballots — mostly mail-in ballots from voters in their home ridings.
Today, Elections Canada finished counting votes in the New Brunswick riding of Fredericton. Jenica Atwin, who won in that riding as a Green in 2019 before crossing the floor to the Liberals, defeated Conservative candidate Andrea Johnson with 16,316 votes.
