The News on election night

Watch this space for local coverage May 2

Follow along with News staff and our Black Press sister papers as we cover election night results in the Nanaimo-Alberni riding online only.

Visit throughout the evening as we bring you stories from the leading camps, photos and video from inside the campaign headquarters and local election results.

Due to the timing of the federal election, which occurs well after our deadline on Monday, The News will not be carrying election-related news in our Tuesday, May 3 print edition. 

Final results can be read in our Daily edition on May 3 — but to stay on top of the results in the mid-Island riding, visit on election night.

In-depth reporting from the election, its result, fall out and reactions in the region, can be read in our Friday, May 6 edition.
