I just received this comment from a voter, who doesn't say where this occurred, but is obviously unhappy with the organization at the polls.

From : Filly
Text : I just waited in line 45 minutes to vote. People were looking at the line-up and leaving. Who organized this mess?

The person who posted this comment got back to me and said the polling station with the long wait was in the centre of St. John's.

Just received this from reporter Ashley Fitzpatrick.

Polls in Holyrood were seeing heavy traffic this evening, particularly within the last two hours, according to returning officer Gary Corbett.

Advanced polls are not yet in, with seven stations now counting up.
"We'll hoping that we'll cross 1,000 voters," Corbett said, shortly after 8 p.m.
The town has about 1,600 eligible voters

I just received this comment from a reader. I don't know how to answer. The polls closed at 8 p.m. so I assume voting is over and I guess it depends on where you were voting.

Has vote counting started?

The polls close at 8 p.m., so counting should be underway now or very soon. It usually doesn't take long with today's technology to get the results out.

Waiting for the first results is a little like watching paint dry, I agree, but it should start very soon.

I'm told ftn means for the win here, not something more derogatory. I'll go with that.

We're expected to have results soon. I guess it's taking longer to count them than we expected.
Maybe someone interrupted the count and they had to start over again.

[Comment From VoterVoter: ] 
Id say there were a lot of people still waiting when 8 passed and the doors were closed. If they were inside they get to vote right?
Tuesday September 24, 2013 8:42 Voter

I would assume anyone inside at 8 p.m. would be able to vote, but the doors would be closed to other people who show up.

If one SJ polling station is backed up, they should still be able to post results from the ballots they do have.

This just in from our municipal reporter Bonnie Belec who's out covering the election in St. John's.

Election results for the city of johns are slightly behind schedule according to the city's communications office.

#cbelxn just because you are working a voting booth does not mean you can make your own rules. Students make up a large part of your city!
