Official Election Results

Salt Spring, here are your official, preliminary, election results. These results were posted tonight by Anthony (Tony) Kennedy, Salt Spring's Deputy Chief Election Officer at 9:01 PM on the doors of the Community Gospel Chapel. We were there in person to get you the results as fast as possible. The results are totals from all Salt Spring Island polling stations. The final, official results still need to be verified by the Chief Election Officer in Victoria before they are confirmed as final. It may take a number of days for these results to be finalized and there is a small chance they may change.

See photos below of official results as posted by the Deputy Chief Election officer and detailed break downs of votes by polling station, advance polls and off island polls. Here are the winners:

  • Wayne McIntyre wins for CRD Director
  • Peter Grove and George Grams win for Islands Trust Directors
  • Rob Pingle, Kathy Page and Katherine Byers win for School Trustees

Oh and these guys were all huddled outside in the freezing cold to bring you the results in real-time. Sean Mcintyre from the Driftwood, Gary Brooks from CFSI and Christopher Roy from the Exchange staying warm having fun.
