Voters Head to the Polls in Yukon

Yukoners are heading to the polls today.
Since 2002 the territory has been governed by the conservative leaning Yukon Party.
The opposition NDP and Liberals are both campaigning to put  a price on carbon, while Premier Darrell Pasloski has stood opposed to the idea.
As for indigenous/aboriginal candidates in the race, the Liberals have four, Yukon Party has three, the NDP has two, and one is running as an independent.
According to a report from the Canadian Press, a Datapath poll from mid October, shows a tie between the Liberal’s and Yukon Party, with Liz Hanson’s New Democrats not far behind. The poll had 626 respondents with only 10 per cent undecided.
Voters have until 8 o’clock pacific time this evening to cast a ballot for the 19 seats up grabs.
