The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

Coming Monday, The Tyee's updated riding forecasts

The race is tightening in these final days of the provincial election. According to new polls released today, the Liberals are expected to take about 37 per cent of the popular vote, and the NDP 43 per cent.

That makes updating The Tyee's riding forecast more difficult -- especially for the 10 ridings we deemed 'too close to call' when we made our predictions back on April 22.

But we're going to bite the bullet and make those calls anyway.

We are armed with the latest polling data as crunched by Angus Reid, Ipsos Reid and the insightful blog, and analysis from The Tyee's own in-depth coverage over the past weeks.

We've had reporters on the ground covering the race and the issues in Cariboo North, in Point Grey, in the Comox Valley, Prince George and Pemberton.

And we've also heard from you, our readers. Thanks to everyone from around the province who offered feedback on our first round of predictions. And there's still time to add your two cents. Just email us here.

Look for our updated forecast on Monday, and in the meantime, find up-to-the-minute coverage on the Election Hook, here.
