If you’re undecided, and want to keep track of some last minute volleying for support, the #abvote hashtag is the hub of the discussion on Twitter.
You can access that discussion forum without a Twitter account, it’s free to sit on the sidelines and see the links and discussions fly. Head to search.twitter.com and simply type in #abvote to see all the tweets talking about the election. Hashtags for the leading parties are #wrp, #ndp, #abparty, #ablib and #pcaa.
If you want to branch out from the Twitter website and have a detailed comparison of the debate as it happens, you can use apps like TweetDeck or HootSuite. These applications can create side by side windows of hashtags that automatically update so you can compare things in realtime.
Once you’ve decided where you’re going to place your vote, it’s easy to find where to vote at elections.ab.ca. You can check if you’re registered, make sure you have the ID requirements handy, and find your polling place.
