The numbers

By the time advanced voting was closed at 11am this morning, 55,659 New Democrats had cast ballots in the leadership race. Based on a total party membership of approximately 132,000, that means a little over 42% of members have already voted.

Figuring out how many votes are still out there to be had depends on what you think the final turnout will look like. If you expect a 60% turnout, that means there are about 24,000 votes to come. A 70% turnout would mean about 37,000 more votes.

Voting reopens at 5pm after the candidates have each addressed the convention.
