I wrote a blog a few weeks ago poking at the media for making such a big kerfuffle about the “low turnout” in the Referendum after just a few days of data coming back from Elections BC. I noted the differences in numbers indicated a likely connection to patterns in how ballots were mailed out, and perhaps some effects from the Canada Post strike. Also, it was just too darn early to get all crazy.
I have just finished off the graphs up to their last update on December 7 and posted a thread on Twitter. Below you’ll find the graphs and the thread. Also, here is the Numbers spreadsheet I did it in, and an export to Excel as well.
