After a day that saw the United Conservative Party's leadership election hit with concerns about the security of the voting process and allegations of "suspicious behaviour," candidates said Friday evening they were putting the controversy behind them in the final push to get out the vote.

Voting in the leadership race will wrap Saturday, with the winner announced in the evening in Calgary.

But concerns were raised Thursday — the first day of voting — by the Doug Schweitzer and Brian Jean campaigns that the distribution of the personal identification numbers (PINs) needed to cast a ballot in the party's online and telephone voting system was too loose.
