Poor voter turnout puzzles PCs, province

.

Erskine Enquirer

The provincial Progressive Conservative leadership election began with the first ballot last weekend, with very few Albertans going to the polls to vote.

People 16 years of age and older were eligible to vote. Politicians weren’t sure whether it was apathy that caused the low turnout at the polls. One would think we’d all be quite concerned who is going to be our next premier.

Because the votes were inconclusive, the next ballot will be held Oct. 1.
