Increase at the Advanced Polls

Did you know Canada.. Elections Canada is seeing a huge increase in voters at the advanced polls.

Elections Canada officials say there was a 30% increase in the number of Islanders voting in the advance polls compared to the 2008 federal election.

PEI is not the only place where numbers are soaring. There's a 45% increase in Alberta and a 67% increase in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Over 676,000 Canadians voted on Friday and over 823,000 on Monday, representing the two busiest days of advance voting EVER.

Across the country more than two million people cast ballots in advance polls. That's an increase of almost 35 per cent over the last federal election.
