PC membership sales to close at midnight Wednesday ahead of unity vote - 2017-07-12
The final push is on to sell Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta (PCAA) memberships before midnight Wednesday, the deadline for people to join if they want to vote on merging with the Wildrose Party.
A PC membership will guarantee the cardholder an opportunity to cast an electronic ballot over three days ending on Saturday July 22. Wildrose members will vote on the proposal to join with PCs to create the United Conservative Party that Saturday.
PCAA president Len Thom said the party has seen a surge of about 42,000 new members. Processing all the new applications is a challenge, but Thom said the party is getting it done.
