    People across Newfoundland and Labrador head*to the polls Thursday to cast their ballots in the provincial election.

    New Democrat Alison Coffin, who won her party's leadership uncontested in March, and NL Alliance Leader Graydon Pelley, who formed his party just a month before the election was called, are also on the ballot*for their first elections.

    There are a number of districts where the races will be interesting to watch, including two popular independents*—*and former Liberals —*running as incumbents.

    Back in the November 2015 election, the total number of votes cast was 200,834 with a voter turnout of 55.3 per cent.
