Advance Voter Turnout Results file photo.

Elections Ontario reports voter turnout for advance voting in four London-area ridings was lower for this election compared to 2011.

Advance polling ended last Friday. Elections Ontario reports a total of 21,625 people cast a ballot at advance polls compared to 22,990 in 2011. Although the overall total was down, the riding of London West had a bigger turnout in 2014 with about 1300 more ballots cast, despite 2 fewer polling stations in the riding. London-West is currently represented by rookie NDP MPP Peggy Sattler who won her seat in an August 2013 byelection after it was vacated by Liberal Chris Bentley.

Here is how the numbers break down by local riding:
