Result of Voting

This is a sample result of voting sheet, which the returning officer uses to validate the results in the electoral district. It lists the number of votes cast for each candidate, total valid votes, rejected ballots and votes cast.

Under the results, the following text appears: “Certificate of returning officer. I certify that the results of the validation of the results at this electoral event are as stated above. In the case where votes were 'ascertained' because of the loss or destruction of a ballot box as per Section 296 of the Canada Elections Act, I have attached a separate statement noting the number of such votes that have been included in the totals reported above.” The sheet is signed and dated by the returning officer.
