A number of interested, potential voters came to the Stettler Legion in search of defining features that would direct their vote when the United Conservative Party (UCP) nomination voting begins later this month.
Nate Horner, Todd Pawsey, and incumbent Rick Strankman have put their names forward in the chance of becoming the future MLA of the Drumheller-Stettler constituency.
As part of this process, three forums were scheduled in Drumheller, Stettler, and Consort. The nominees came to Stettler on Tues. Sept. 18.
Panel members were subject to ‘loaded questions’ like how they will handle rural crime and move forward on economic development.
All three nominees have a background in agriculture whether it be growing up in the industry or operating a full-time farm or ranch and all have a history in politics to some degree.
The polls are set to open on Fri. Sept. 27 in Provost from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. before travelling to Coronation in the evening, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Stettler will host the polling stations Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and then move to Drumheller from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The third and final day, Sept. 29 will begin in Oyen 8:30 a.m. until 12 noon and then move to Hanna where the polls will be stationed from 1:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
