Slightly less than 60 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballot in the 38th general election for Nova Scotia yesterday, according to preliminary numbers available last night.

That figure is about the same voter turnout as the previous election when in 2006 voter turnout hit record lows.

A little more than 59 per cent of registered voters went to polling stations in the last provincial election, which was a six per cent decrease in voter turnout compared with the 2003 election.


Elections Nova Scotia told Metro Halifax last night they expected to have the official voter numbers for yesterday's election sometime today.
