EDMONTON — Alberta’s Progressive Conservative party got off to a rocky start in its first foray into online voting.
Some party members were taking to social media to lodge complaints and voice anger about missing PIN numbers and problems or long delays in voting by phone or online.
Those calling the PC party helpline were told to try back in two hours due to heavy volumes.
Party members are casting votes to pick a new leader and premier, with results to be announced Saturday night.
This is the first time the party has tried the electronic voting system.
There will also be in-person voting Saturday.
