Voter turnout for HST referendum released

That represents a little more than half of all registered voters in the province – there were nearly 3.06 million registered voters as of July 22, 2011 – who participated in the referendum, the independent office of the Legislature points out. In comparison, the mail-based 2002 Treaty Negotiations Referendum saw 790,182 voting packages returned.

Also, a revised estimate of the overall cost of the referendum is $8.9 million, down from $12 million.

The results of the referendum are expected to be released on or shortly after Aug. 25.
