UCP Moves Vote for Leadership Race to Mail-In Ballot

Kenny's leadership review is going from in-person to mail-in, according to the United Conservative Party.

A post on the UCP website outlines the reason for moving the vote in Red Deer, "Since the SGM was announced, our UCP Membership has more than doubled and more than 15,000 people registered to participate. Because of the intense interest, all members as of the SGM Early Bird Deadline of March 19 will be able to vote.

"The SGM on April 9 will go ahead as planned in a virtual format where all members will be able to participate at no cost, but voting will take place by mail-in ballot only. A national auditing firm is being retained to oversee the mail-in vote," the post said on the UCP website.
