Make Voting A Priority: May 5

In the last Alberta Provincial Election in 2012 there was only a 54.4% turn out. That’s really sad and we can do better. I encourage you to right now put an appointment in your calendar to vote on May 5. Schedule it in. Make it a priority. 

If you are unsure of anything about the election – your riding, where to vote, what ID you need to vote, if you’ve moved…. Answers are on the Elections Alberta website or you can call them at 1-877-422-8683.

Dave Cournoyer, an Edmonton writer and political watcher, has assembled a list of candidates along with their website and social media profiles. I’ve found it to be a useful tool to be able to research and follow candidates.
