Judicial recount results arriving after narrow election wins
Tight outcomes lead to recounts in some ridings after Oct. 19 election
Judicial recounts have been completed and others are in the works in a number of ridings where the results were tight following the federal election of Oct. 19.
The recounts are mandatory if the vote margin between the first- and second-place candidates is less than one one-thousandth of the valid votes cast.
They can also be done at the request of a candidate if there are questions about miscounted or rejected ballots.
Elections Canada will publish the results on its website after the recounts are completed.
Here is a list of final recount results and recounts ordered to date:
