2019 Alberta election resources

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The Alberta Provincial election is here, so here is a list of things that you can check out on the internet to get more information about how to vote, the parties that are running, what they stand for, and how that might affect you. I am always available to meet with you and help you prepare to vote, whether that is what to do on election day to vote, finding where you will be voting, who the people you have the choice to vote for are, or looking through the promises the parties are making to see which fit best with your views in an unbiased way. Please contact Rachel Janzen if you would like to spend some time looking at your options.
