2. ABC - anyone but conservative.

I intend to vote for the progressive candidate most likely defeat the conservatives in my riding.

Don't care if it's Liberal or NDP, whatever it takes to make my vote count.

In my case it looks like my riding is leaning Liberal and will stay Liberal. If the NDP were ahead, then I'd vote NDP but at this point that's looking more hypothetical than real in my riding. Until we get electoral reform, it's strategic voting forever for me to keep the cons out.

Here are the riding projections in case anyone is interested. Select your region:

3. Good, though AB will still be stuck with Khmer Kenney and his anti intellectual agenda...

...until the next provincial election.

No more mask mandate as of Sept...Including public transit...In the middle of a fourth wave.

I don't live in Alberta, thank goodness, but Ontario's Delta Dougie isn't much better.

4. Sadly, being in Alberta I already know what will happen here...

but maybe, just maybe, we can reduce the number of ridings the cons win here by a few. The Liberal party is, for all intents and purposes, non-existent here but the NDP party have definitely grown and become much better known since they won the previous Provincial election. They definitely have my vote both provincially and federally until the Liberal party becomes competitive here.

5. I hear you

Whatever it takes to make your vote count.

Here are the riding projections for AB, you can check your riding to see which progressive party (NDP or LIB) has the better chance to win there:

In my riding here in ON it's more likely LIB than NDP.

Rachel Notley was a good Premier for AB, hope she makes a comeback.

6. Thanks for the link...

It looks like I'll have to watch the local polls closely to see which one, Liberal or NDP, is closest to the con.

We have a NDP representative provincially which was a pleasant surprise given the cons coming back last election.

The last I checked Notley and the NDP were ahead of Kenny and the cons. The NDP win previously was considered an 'outlier' but now Albertans know who they are and what they can do and they did a good job last time so anything is possible.

Kenny's numbers are dropping, he's not even popular with his own base right now.

7. There may be other polls out there

Last election sites like votewell.ca gave an average of available polls I believe, which might lessen the chance of inaccuracies, but votewell have been offline since last election.

Personally I like to go by multiple polls but can't find any other link than the ones I listed above. Regardless, I believe one source is still better than nothing and that's what I'll be going by in the absence of anything else.

That said, you can also try your local news for any riding/ seat projections.

8. It was a near impossibility during the last elections, both provincial and federal, to find...

local polls for my area for some reason. Hopefully that will not be the case this time.
