Nearly a quarter of Carleton residents, or 24.19% voted in advance polls, according to an analysis by Global News. That’s the second-highest in the country.
To come up with the number, Global News took advance voting estimates from Elections Canada, along with the number of Canadian citizens over 18 in each riding, according to the 2011 National Household Survey from Statistics Canada.
Global says it isn’t a perfect estimate, since the population has increased since 2011.
A total of 15,420 Carleton voters cast a ballot at advance polls. Elections Canada says 3.6 million electors voted at advance polls across the country, marking a 71% increase since the 2011 election.
Elections Canada notes that these numbers are estimates, and that not all polls may have yet been reported.
