How many votes are in play?

by

By my count, 65,108 votes were cast on the first ballot. Subtracting the advance vote of 55,659, that leaves 9,449 votes cast this weekend.

Update 11:16am. Romeo Saganash dropped out after advance ballots were distributed, so his name still appeared as an option on the first ballot. I’m told that any votes for Mr. Saganash on the first ballot were treated as spoiled ballots. The second choices on those ballots will now be counted and so the total vote will increase. By how much, I don’t know.
