Lot of reports of 30-60 min waits in Vancouver as well but I think its a combination of a good voter turn out and people simply going to the more known voting stations. There were over 100 stations and citizens could go to any of their choosing. I highly doubt the wait times were this high even at half of them. Went earlier today and walked right in.

If nothing else, this. Go out and use our democratic system, flawed or not.
It is actually going to be four years for the next mayor. I am surprised by the lack of coverage this got in the news...

This time in Van there are 117 give or take a few I can't remember. Besides adding a significant number of voting stations the biggest change is you can vote at any station you choose vs before you had a designated station to go to. This alone will have increased voter turnout as I've heard so many people in the past missed their opportunity to vote because they couldn't get back to their neighbourhood in time the day of.

I know the numbers aren't in but it appears that the turnout was very good this time around which is awesome. Civic elections you could argue affect you the most. For those who are still confused between what the Federal Government does vs Provincial Government vs Municipal, here's a short video to explain what the City actually does. You would be surprised how many people have no clue. I work for the City and we still often get calls regarding Passports, Drivers License, Health Care etc

I went in the late afternoon, and was in and out of my voting station in no time. There were other voters there as well, but there was no line up at all. The longest part was actually me filling out the ballot form.

Honestly, as far as vote counting is concerned, the Vancouver municipal election (with its Scantron type voting) has to be the easiest among the 3 different levels of government.

Vancouver advanced voter turnout itself was 98% better than the last election, so that's pretty big.

Oh great, Mayor Moonbeam wins again.
Does this mean more bike lanes and condos in Vancouver to gentrify the city?

I bet Bike boy is gonna celebrate by drinking his kale and fruit juice smoothie while riding his bicycle.
