There, I fixed it.

In one teensy weensy nod to competence and accountability, Elections Newfoundland and Labrador have posted the poll-by-poll results of last month's provincial by-election in Carbonear–Harbour Grace. (PDF link.)

Before you get too excited, know that the results are not in machine-readable format, despite having obviously been prepared in one (and that, nearly a month ago.) This corner has remedied this obvious lapse.
Here is the same data, in tab-delimited vanilla PDF, which you can copy and paste into other software:

Meanwhile, as of the close of business today, December 27th, 2013, with only two government working days left before it becomes 2014, there is still no sign of the 2012 Newfoundland and Labrador political finance disclosures, nor of the 2011 election-period contributions to political parties, as required by the provincial elections act. (It's probably too much to hope, at this point, that the candidate disclosures for last June's Cartwright–L'Anse au Clair by-election, might also have shown up this calendar year.)

Consider it a make-work project.
