Metro Vancouver has voted a resounding no in the transit plebiscite. Click through the interactive to see how the results broke down by each of the 23 municipalities that voted in the referendum. 

Maple Ridge, the township of Langley and Richmond voted strongly against the tax, which would have contributed to the region's $7.5-billion transit improvement plan. 

The suburbs were the strongest in voting no. 

The city of Vancouver was split almost exactly down the middle with just 50.81 per cent voting against the transit plebiscite.

Only three of the 23 voting municipalities — Belcarra, Bowen Island and Metro Vancouver Electoral Area A — voted in favour of the increased tax.

How did Metro Vancouver vote as a whole?

Metro Vancouver has voted 62 per cent against a 0.5 per cent sales tax increase to improve transit in the region. 

Of the 1,562,386 registered voters in Metro Vancouver, only 48.64 cast a ballot in the referendum. That means the turnout for the transit vote is higher than the provincial average of 33 per cent for the 2014 municipal elections.
