After 40 days of leaders criss-crossing Canada, making promises about how they would lead the country, it's time to see which party will get that chance.

As votes get counted Monday evening, we will have comprehensive coverage with real-time results, big election night news and analysis about how the vote is unfolding — and what your next government will look like.


You'll be able to track the election results in your own riding and follow our live blog online — in addition to articles written by our political reporters.

Our results page will give you the overall seat breakdown in real-time, riding by riding results, and allow you to explore key battlegrounds. Results will start to trickle in as polls close, with analysis being added by polls analyst Éric Grenier.
