Alberta voters have elected United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney as their new premier, handing him a majority government.

Kenney tasted victory Tuesday night despite allegations that he and his team manipulated the 2017 UCP leadership race with a "kamikaze campaign." The campaign also saw a string of UCP candidates step down after it was revealed they made racist and transphobic comments.

Almost three times as many voters cast ballots in advance polls compared to 2015.
