Polls closed at 8 p.m. on Monday night, but that time came and went and Toronto resident Neil Metcalfe was still waiting in line to vote. 

Metcalfe, along with many others, formed a long line out the door of the Regent Park Aquatic Centre in downtown Toronto's Regent Park. 

Metcalfe said he arrived some time after 6 p.m. and waited in line for an hour and a half.

"I was just waiting in line, trying to vote. Then I got an update on my phone declaring there was already a mayor and it was Tory," he said. 

"I was like, 'What's the point of voting?' There's probably other people out there that feel like I do, like my voice never got heard. There were lots of other people that were behind me in line that probably didn't vote either." 

Metcalfe described the voting station as "disorganized" and "chaotic."
