According to the unofficial results, Rice, a public servant and former professor, received 32.36 per cent -- or 5,833 ballots -- of the vote.

Hoyle, a University of Alberta senator, received 32.18 per cent of the vote, or 5,800 ballots.

Scott Johnston trailed behind the leaders with 11.71 per cent of the vote, then Glynnis Lieb with 9.79 per cent, Jon Morgan 9.59 per cent, and Jason Carter with 4.37 per cent.

The counts are Edmonton Elections’ unofficial results; they will be verified in the coming days. Top Stories
