**** Elections Nova Scotia Release
Live Feed Election Results
The live feed of unofficial results is now available publicly on the ENS website and media can link to it using the following URL: http://results.electionsns.ca/.
The following electoral districts had delayed openings at voting locations. Voting at these locations has been extended until 8:30 pm. These electoral districts will not report results until after that time:
Antigonish – Club 60 Antigonish, 121 Frank McGibbon Lane Antigonish
Bedford South – Northwood Place, 185 Gary Martin Dr. Bedford
Clayton Park West – Parkland Estates Retirement Residence, 118 Fairfax Dr Halifax
Cumberland South – Nappan United Church, 4278 Highway 302 Nappan
Halifax Citadel Sable Island – Dalhousie Student Union Building, 6136 University Ave. Halifax
Halifax Atlantic – City Church, 276 Herring Cove Rd Halifax
Voters that are in line at their voting location before 8 pm will have an opportunity to vote.
The counting of out-of-district write-in ballot polls began at 6:30 pm in Dartmouth. The volumes of in-district write-in ballots cast in electoral districts did not warrant starting their counting early.
The Chief Electoral Officer, Richard Temporale has indicated he may need to end the vote count at midnight if it looks like it could go extremely late due to worker fatigue. If this occurs, counting and live feed results would resume at 10 am the next day (Wednesday, August 18th). Elections Nova Scotia will communicate any decisions regarding the counting as soon as possible.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, ENS is asking that media not visit local returning offices tonight. Returning offices are not able to accommodate media alongside their own staff, and scrutineers permitted by legislation on election night while maintaining the physical distancing to meet COVID-19 protocols. Also filming and photography is not permitted inside voting locations. We appreciate your patience.
