Estimated 5.78 million people voted in advance polls for the federal election

Elections Canada Advance Poll Sign

Elections Canada says an estimated 5.78 million people cast advance ballots for Monday's federal election.

That's an increase of nearly 18.5 per cent from advance polls in the 2019 vote.

The advance polls were open from September 10th to 13th.

Elections Canada says the number may change as some polls may not have reported yet.

A breakdown of the estimated number of electors who voted at the advance polls for all 338 electoral districts is being calculated and will soon be available on elections.ca.
