Voting results at 10:35 pm on election night September 20, 2021.

Before the federal election results in BC started rolling in, Nanaimo-Ladysmith NDP candidate Lisa Marie Barron spent voting day “pushing to the very end”.

Barron and her team were out around the community today, following up on phone calls, and knocking on doors of voters to see if they’d voted yet or needed help getting to the polls before the 7 pm closing time.

Through the campaign Barron and her team heard about affordability issues, the climate crisis, and the challenges around Indigenous reconciliation.

She met with as many people in her community as possible. Already being a school board trustee (SD68) and herself a parent means she already has roots and reach within the region.

Being up against a well-known Green incumbent (Paul Manly) in Nanaimo-Ladysmith was part of the challenge of this campaign. One of her key talking points on that was that the NDP offers constituents the opportunity to have an NDP Member of Parliament as part of a party with Official Party Status in the House of Commons. That ultimately gives constituents a stronger voice in parliament, says Barron.

Election results may not be known in full across the country tonight, due to the large volume of mail-in ballots that won’t be counted until starting tomorrow.

COVID protocols have been maintained at voting stations by Elections Canada. For Barron, COVID-related safety was a top priority on her campaign.
