B.C. voters head to the polls today in a much-anticipated contest where the outcome is far from certain.

The polls close at 8 p.m.

Ridings in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are considered to be key battlegrounds, partly because many saw tight races in the last election.

There is only one incumbent MLA running this time, leaving the field wide open.

The riding of Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows was left vacant by the B.C. NDP’s Michael Sather.

It’s a riding to watch with longtime resident and pharmacist Elizabeth Rosenau looking to replace Sather and hold the riding for the NDP.

City of Pitt Meadows councillor Dr. Doug Bing is running for the B.C. Liberals so the race is expected to be tight.

In Maple Ridge-Mission, incumbent B.C. Liberal Marc Dalton faces a familiar foe – the NDP’s Mike Bocking.

The News has reporters out in the field tonight covering local ridings and candidates’ gathering sites.

Election results and dispatches from the trenches will be posted online as they come in. Look for your local riding below – the most recent posts will be at the top of each riding section.

Also, Black Press reporters are tweeting election observations from across B.C. – see their tweets on our Twitterfall above.
