With more than 12,000 registered voters in the MRC Pontiac, just over 7,500 cast votes in the election of the region’s warden.
This represents a voter turnout of 58 per cent. The fact that this was the first time voters got a chance to choose the warden means that the turnout numbers can’t be compared to years past.
Turnout at the advance polls was about 27 per cent.
