David Boyd wins!

Posted By on Sun, Oct 19, 2008 at 9:13 PM

Weirdest result of the election:

David Boyd actually won the internet portion of the District 11 vote. He brought in 552 votes, to Shelia Fougere's 547 and Peter Kelly's 18.

Only 52 other people voted for Boyd at the conventional polling places, bringing his total to 604. But even that is wildly out of proportion to the votes he won in other districts--- his next highest return was 164 votes in District 3, and in most others he only received double digits.

I don't mean Boyd any disrespect, but this seems all wrong. It's much more likely that something went wrong with the internet counting for District 11. Or, perhaps, Kelly's and Boyd's numbers are transposed. But I got these numbers directly off the HRM Election website.
