Federal Election

UPDATE: Polls now closed for Canada’s 2019 federal election

Results will be coming in for B.C. throughout the night

UPDATE: Polls are now closed across the province. Check out our story following the results for Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon and B.C. as they come in.

A new federal government is expected to be named Monday night, as Canada’s 2019 general election gets underway.

The main parties vying for the 338 seats in the House of Commons are Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, Jagmeet Singh’s New Democrats, and Elizabeth May’s Greens. The People’s Party of Canada, under former high-profile Tory Maxime Bernier, is running for the first time.

Polls are open in B.C. until 7 p.m. local time.

*NOTE: Although voters in the provincial election were able to vote at any convenient polling station, federal election rules mean you must vote at your designated station. Your station can be found on your voting information card, mailed out to registered voters in the weeks before the election, or by searching your address online at Elections Canada.
