Advance voting was even more popular than first thought.

According to preliminary figures released Tuesday, October 15, by Elections Canada some 4.7-million people cast ballots during advance polls this past weekend.

That's up 29 per cent from the 3.65-million who voted in advance in the 2015 general election.

These are still estimates.

Not all polls have reported yet.

The number of estimated voters by province is still being calculated and should be available soon.
