HALIFAX — The latest news on the results of Nova Scotia's election (all times eastern):
Most polls have closed across Nova Scotia as the province awaits the results of a midsummer election held during the COVID-19 health crisis.
Voting will continue for another half-hour at six polling stations where voting was delayed this morning.
The Liberals are hoping the vote will hand them a third majority government after campaigning on their record in office and their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A total of 28 seats are needed to secure a majority in the province's newly expanded 55-seat legislature.
