Hey there, time traveller!

It turns out voter turnout wasn’t as terrible as first predicted.
As the votes rolled in late Tuesday night, initial numbers suggested just over half of Manitoba voters actually hit the polls.
Better tallies this morning put the number at 57.47 per cent, slightly better than in 2007 when 56.75 per cent of Manitobans cast a ballot. That could be thanks to a significant number of voters who hit advance polls and tight races in several ridings that made voters feel their choice really mattered.
