Horgan quipped on Twitter that he was "less anxious about my bus and more concerned about British Columbians getting stuck with four more years of Christy Clark".

Weaver started Monday in Vancouver and ended it in Saanich North with candidate Adam Olsen, who finished third in 2013 - but only 400 votes behind the victor in a riding that resulted in a photo-finish three-way race.

In order to vote Tuesday, residents must prove their identity and home address, by showing a driver's licence, B.C. Identification Card, B.C. Services Card (with photo), or a Certificate of Indian Status.
