Voter turnout in Saskatchewan's election was down this year compared to 2007 coming in at an estimated 66 per cent,, says Elections Saskatchewan.
"The preliminary numbers for voter turnout were just over 398,000," said Daniel Bogden with Elections Saskatchewan. There are just over 603,000 eligible voters.
At 66 per cent, that's down about 10 per cent compared to the 2007 election.
An official number is expected Nov. 19 when a final count will take place.
The Salvation Army has more than 100 beds between Saskatoon and Regina, but even those aren't enough to shelter those in need after the province's first snowfall.
Salvation Army spokesperson Chad Jeremy said they saw a surge in Saskatoon three weeks ago, long before the white blanket came down.
"Every single one of the 68 beds are now full, and now the overflow beds have come into play," he said, referring to simple mattresses laid out on the floor.
The 40 beds in Regina are also mostly filled up as well.
Green Party Leader Victor Lau said he's proud of what his party was able to accomplish in Monday night's election, especially since he took over as party leader only six weeks ago.
He's especially pleased with the NDP's poor showing, led by Dwain Lingenfelter whom Lau called "weak kneed".
"The played the game of campaign from the left and govern from the right, and they saw the results tonight."
Lau claimed that Brad Wall won in Swift Current because he "managed to convince people that he's an okay kind of guy."
Dwain Lingenfelter resigned as leader of the Saskatchewan NDP after he lost his seat in Regina Douglas Park to the Sask. Party’s Russ Marchuk.
Lingenfelter’s loss marks the first time in Saskatchewan history that an NDP leader has lost his own seat in a general election.
