Results for the 2018 Ontario Election are expected to come in fairly quickly as Elections Ontario has now entered the digital age.

Algoma-Manitoulin election clerk, Lila Cyr, says there are around 100 polls in the riding, and of that, only one in White River is not electronically tabulated, so voters will find out results within minutes following the closing of the polls.

Cyr adds there are 16 super polls in our riding and so we expect to see advanced polls fairly quickly.

We will also be keeping an eye out on the Nickel Belt and Sudbury ridings …

In Algoma Manitoulin, we have six candidates: Liberal Charles Fox, Northern Ontario Party Tommy Lee, Green Party Justin Tilson and incumbent New Democrat, Mike Mantha, Libertarian Party’s Kalena Mallon-Ferguson and Progressive Conservative, Jib Turner. Mantha is seeking a third term in office and is expected to win…

Meanwhile, in Sudbury, we have eight candidates, its expected to be a big night for Glenn Thibeault of the Liberals. Following a byelection in the riding, Thibeault switched from NDP to Liberal and acquire a minister’s position as a result, but it will be interesting to see if he holds on to his seat, especially following the byelection scandal where  Kathleen Whynne claimed the distinction of being the only premier to have to appear in court.

The Nickel Belt riding has seven candidates, and has been held by NDPer France Gelinas for quite a while. She is expected to win yet another term.

And, we are in for an interesting night in regards to province wide, NDP or PC … everyone is on tenterhooks waiting to find out … stay tuned to the Moose … for the latest results.
