Alberta Goes to the Polls Today, March 3, 2008

Polls open across the province at 9 a.m on Monday and close at 8 p.m.

More than two million Albertans are eligible to cast a ballot Monday in the provincial election as the ruling Progressive Conservatives seek an 11th consecutive majority government, campaigning on a slogan of change.

"People want change. They have to vote for that change," said Mason. "We need more NDP MLAs to stand up for ordinary Albertans."

"Change is important, but we want a positive change and we haven't seen that change," Wildrose Alliance Leader Paul Hinman said on Feb. 21.

"If they want to make a change they can vote Liberal, and what we're hearing more and more is that people want a change," said Taft.
