In Clark Cassy O'Connor is holding her seat with 20.1% of current votes.

Elise Archer is also off to a strong start, followed by Ella Haddad.

Independants Sue Hickey and Kristie Johnston are also fairing very well, coming ahead of Liberal Madeline Ogilvie.

In Franklin, Jaccquie Petrusma is leading the charge with 19.8% of total votes.

Rosalie Woodruff also looks set to resecure her seat.
