Last fall, we looked at cost per vote for provincial general elections. At the time, Election NL hadn’t released the 2011 general election figures but with those numbers now available, it’s time to update the earlier comparison.
Two things to note:
- first, these comparisons are only for election period spending by each of the three parties. Last fall we looked at total spending by the parties throughout the year.
- second, the chart is a bar instead of a line graph. This is a better visual presentation since the individual yearly comparisons are still there without implying any connection from one year to the next.
