CALGARY — Two candidates in a Calgary constituency are in limbo after provincial voting results put them in a tie.
Progress Conservative incumbent Linda Johnson and NDP challenger Anam Kazim each ended the night with 7,015 votes in Calgary Glenmore.
Elections Alberta is to conduct an official recount of all the ballots today.
If it is still a tie, the next step will involve requesting a judicial review under the Alberta Election Act.
A judge would examine rejected and spoiled ballots in an attempt to choose a winner.
If that fails to resolve the matter, the constituency will be declared vacant and a byelection will have to be called.
