[...] On election night, for Outremont, York–Simcoe and Burnaby South, there were 53,686 visits to the website to view the results of the by-elections and 58,206 visits the next day. [...] The preliminary lists are also used to produce the VICs, as a basis for the revised lists of electors (with elector information added during the revision period) and the official lists of electors (the lists used on election day).
