Nova Scotians head to the polls Tuesday for the province’s 38th general election, and the political landscape in Halifax Regional Municipality could change drastically — or barely at all.

The NDP holds 13 seats in HRM going into tomorrow’s election, while the Tories (three) and Liberals (two) hold far less real estate. Only six of these ridings have changed hands in the last three elections.

Below are the candidates running in each of the 18 ridings within HRM, plus results from the 2006 and 2003 provincial elections. The list is compiled with information from Elections Nova Scotia.
