The Newfoundland and Labrador Liberal Party has a new leader.

Dwight Ball, the former interim provincial Liberal leader, won the race in the third ballot with 2,832 points.

The party says 63 per cent of the roughly 38,000 eligible voters cast ballots.

Just over a week of voting wrapped up at noon Sunday.

Ballots were cast using a one-person, one-vote system that allowed voting online and by telephone using personal identification numbers.

Voters were asked to rank candidates by preference.
