People across Newfoundland and Labrador head to the polls Thursday to cast their ballots in the provincial election.
The public will decide whether to give Dwight Ball’s Liberal government a second term. Those looking to unseat Ball include the Progressive Conservatives under leader Ches Crosbie, who entered provincial politics just over a year ago.
New Democrat Alison Coffin, who won her party’s leadership uncontested in March, and NL Alliance Leader Graydon Pelley, who formed his party just a month before the election was called, are also on the ballot for their first elections.
There are a number of districts where the races will be interesting to watch, including two popular independents — and former Liberals — running as incumbents.
Back in the November 2015 election, the total number of votes cast was 200,834 with a voter turnout of 55.3 per cent.
Elections Newfoundland and Labrador will open polling stations at 8 a.m. NT, giving people 12 hours to mark their ballots.
