E-Day Done, Now It's Time To Count

^ Up-to-date* seat projections

I suspect an NDP government will form, either a razor-thin Majority or a Majority. I'd like to see the Liberals win a few more seats, but there's a risks that the PCs will take out Gerrard's own seat.

All in all, I suspect another of First Past the Post's famous Manufactured Majorities for the NDP, even if another party wins the popular vote. Which is unfortunate, as a Minority government might provide the right environment for electoral reform to gain sway in this province.

Oh, and Fair Vote Manitoba, HURRY UP AND START DOING STUFF!

ENDNOTE
*Assuming you're reading this before Elections Manitoba officially verifies the results.
