When the counting of absentee ballots began today, the B.C. Liberals had 17,676 more votes than the NDP. Now? It's down to 14,514.

About 22% of absentee ballots have been counted thus far. IF the trend stays the same, Liberals will end the count around 3,000 votes up.

Just got to a computer - is my math right? Gap in Rich-Qu has narrowed to 116?

Yep. About 75% of the absentee votes have been counted. An automatic recount could happen if the trend continues.

If the remainder of the absentees skew NDP at the same rate, the BC Liberals will end up with just 3,000 more votes province-wide than NDP

You asked earlier what evidence there was that the BC NDP tends to do better with absentee votes. I rest my case

The BC Libs won election night vote 41% to 40%...so far the absentees are running 44% NDP and 36.5% Liberal. That's a pretty big difference
