So do they continue counting throughout the night?  Or will they call it a day and resume counting tomorrow?

Yes, they count all tonight.
Anyways, around 90% of votes is already counted now, only a couple of booths aren't finished in most ridings.

Heh, that was close.  I guess a lot of those who voted for him are personal votes instead of voting for him because he's the Lib leader?

The seat had a Liberal incumbent last time (which lost).

Lost to Sherman.  So it's interesting to see him win there.

BTW, according to CBC's website, 6 more seats with results pending, and confirmed results are 59-15-3-4 PC-WR-NDP-Lib

Do you think the desire for change will be too great for the Tories overcome next election? It seems like their win this time was just a fluke.

Perhaps. The reason of the turnaround is probably than voters got afraid of which kind of change they would get. Now, with 17 seats and the Official Opposition, they will be able to show themselves to the Albertans.

If they are good in opposition, they should win easily next time. If they are a bad opposition, being inconsistent and incompetent, then, no.

Calgary - Greenway just pushed the PC to 60.  I'm surprised they've been able to cross this threshhold...

2 more seats to call, according to CBC, and the PC are leading in both.

60-17-4-4

Lac La Biche, a riding that went Liberal in 1993 is the only WRP riding in Northern Alberta.

Two for Red Deer-North, and Alberta Party leads with two votes. Hehe.

That must have been a mistake. I was watching CBC coverage and only had the AP leading for a just over 1 minute. Two Polls for a total of 2 votes. Checking the polling data with Elections AB the smallest poll only had 54 votes.

CBC seems to have stopped updating. According to Elections Alberta, the Liberals won Calgary-McCall. Sad

I was doing a Wildrose map and a PC map to supplement Earl's winner map, but some of the ridings... first Elections Alberta says all polls are reporting, then they'll change and show not all polls reporting, then they'll show all polls reporting and new figures?

The data entry temp at CBC has probably been sent home to bed, so they don't have to pay him overtime...

I'm about to leave, too. I'll email you what I've done, in case you want to use any of it.

Looks good, trebor, but I think Wildrose picked up Calgary-Fish Creek, as well, from what I can see.

Did reckon that a surprise PC hold was just about possible, had not expected a surprise PC landslide. Interesting result.

This was quite the UK 1992 moment, no?

I feel a bit sad I missed it. It's always nice to have an election where polls are so wildly off. It keeps the suspense alive.

Calgary-Fish Creek  has now gone the the WAP

When I made up the map, there was only 1 Poll remaining, and the PCs had a 61 vote lead. The final poll did allow the WAP to win the riding bt 74 votes.
