Change Alberta urges voters to cast ballots strategically

A new website is encouraging Alberta’s citizens to cast their votes wisely.

Change Alberta is a grassroots campaign supporting left-leaning provincial parties like the NDP, the Liberal Party and the Alberta party.

The website highlights candidates likely to win in their respective ridings and encourages voters to cast a ballot for them.

Spokesperson George Melnyk tells City News, they are pushing for strategic voting.

“We’ve been living in a one party state for 44 years. We’ve not found another formula to change it. We have not found another party to replace the ruling party. So that’s where strategic voting came from. The idea is that let’s pull our votes together in order to make a change, otherwise nothing is going to happen,” he said.

Melnyk says the idea is “don’t split the vote. Make your vote count.”
