Opinion polls indicate Conservative candidate Tracy Gray could win Kelowna-Lake Country

Going into today’s election Gray had 40 per cent support

With only a few hours to go until polls close, online polling projections indicate Conservative candidate Tracy Gray is on track to win Kelowna-Lake Country.

According to 338Canada, Gray is projected to win 40 per cent of the popular vote, while Liberal incumbent Stephen Fuhr is projected to win 33.9 per cent of the vote.

While Gray has remained ahead of her rival for most of the campaign, her lead has narrowed in recent weeks. Fuhr on the other hand, has seen his support remain relatively flat.

The same projection poll indicates NDP candidate Justin Kulik’s support has increased in recent weeks, increasing from 9.3 per cent at the beginning of October to 14.4 per cent. The bump in support isn’t likely to change the local election outcome, however his party now sits ahead of Travis Ashley with the Green Party at 8.1 per cent.

The polls will remain open until 7 p.m. tonight.
