This is Tony Tighe with Global TV.
I will be covering the election results at Ric McIver's HQ.
I'll be filing blogs and voice reports all night.
Hi it's Bindu with Global TV. I will be following all the action in wards 9 and 6. I'll be posting updates throughout the night!
This is Jill Croteau here -- I am going to be live at the Mayland Heights polling station for wards 5 and 6..
Hello this is Amber Schinkel. I will reporting from Ward 4 tonight, where there is no incumbent. Should be an interesting night.
Mayoral candidate Naheed Nenshi to appear at Amsterdam Rhino at 8pm to thank volunteers, then he will go to headquarters for results. Campaign manager expects close vote and late result.
It's all quiet at the McIver Headquarters. There are more reporters and camera crews than volunteers.
Ric voted this morning in his southeast ward.
He did some door knocking and spent the afternoon phoning people to vote.
He will be here at 6:30 and will stay here all night.
Nenshi out riding LRT looking for votes in what would be an unprecedented come from behind win. Campaign HQ confident they'll get the youth vote out.
Report of a fake mayoral ballot in ward 9. Nenshi's people not making much of it at this point. But they have notified Election officials.
Nenshi's parents expected at campaign HQ soon. Excited about possibility, proud, but feeling a bit overwhelmed . .

Long lines at polling stations around Calgary. The city says if you're in line by 8pm you'll be able to cast a ballot. However, that could delay counting - making for a late night.
McIver headquarters is slowly filling.
Ric arrived at 6:30 and walked around thanking volunteers.
He spent the last part of the afternoon door knocking in Southwood encouraging people to vote.
Amoung McIver supporters in the crowd here are Provincial Housing Minister Jonathon Denis.
He's looking for who ever becomes the new Mayor to have a more positive less confrontational relationship with the Province.
Just ten minutes away until polls close. Stay tuned for our complete live online coverage!
Nenshi's advisors say Mayors race will be decided in wards 11 and 13. It's believed he has support in Northeast and Northwest as well as centre city. But insiders say how he does in the deep southwest will be pivotal.
We're hearing that some stations almost out of mayoral ballots. More have been sent out but it lends weight to the feeling voter turnout could be very high.
Barb Higgins is spending the night watching the results with her parents and two sisters.
Global Calgary is streaming live right now! Click on the video player at the top of the blog to watch.
Some polling stations report 70 percent voter turnout.
Cheers from Higgins supporters as first results come in.
Polls have closed, but lineups were sure long, especially at the Coventry Hills School! Let the counting begin.
Krushell is watching results coming in. She has a slight lead over Don Koziak. When she saw the numbers, she anxiously said it's still early.
There's evidence of hiccups at polling stations. People complaining about waiting upwards of an hour. Polls now closed but most reporting healthy turnouts.
Happy mood here at the Metropolitan Centre as early results show Barb Higgins in the lead.
