Predict the winners and losers
in the federal election of October 21
HOW TO PLAY
Of the 338 available seats, pick the number of seats each of the following will win. (If zero, state 0.)
(1) Bloc Quebecois
(2) Conservative
(3) Green
(4) Liberal
(5) New Democrat
(6) People's Party
(7) Independent candidate(s) with no party affiliation
(8) Candidate(s) in a registered party not listed above
Then, for fun ... indicate the number of seats per party you WANT to happen. These numbers will have no bearing on the calculation of this election pool.
HOW POINTS ARE CALCULATED
STEP ONE:
100 points for every party you picked the EXACT number of seats won in all 8 of the above categories.
STEP TWO:
One point deducted for every missed seat  plus or minus  for every party.
Example 1: You picked 100 seats for Party X, and they only win 50  you lose 50 points.
Example 2: You picked 5 seats for Party Y, but they win 100  you lose 95 points.
IF A TIE
In the event of two or more entrants with the highest points have the exact number of final points, their names will be placed in a hat and a neutral person will do a random pick for the one winner. As in every FirstPastthePost election, there is only one big winner  all others are complete losers. Second place means nothing.

 Deadline to enter is 12noon Regina time on Election Day  Mon21Oct2019.
 You can alter your prediction as many times as you wish before the deadline; obviously, only your last prediction will count.
 I'll be listing your first name and last initial on this website. If you don't want your real name listed, send me a pseudonym.
 Remember: picking the EXACT number of seats of a small party is as important as the big ones.
We have a winner!
