Turnout 

The last day of voting in the by-election occurred on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The SRC consulted with Indigenous advisors and came to the decision that marketing would not occur on September 30. SRC President Devin Debly highlighted this and concluded that is was “…not [a] great voter turnout, but given the circumstances I don’t think it was that bad”.
