"How many candidates? Yikes! Where Calgary voters are getting municipal election information"
Another option for voters choosing a candidate is to use one's networks. Friends talk with friends, and more formally, many industry and non-profit groups try to help members by questioning candidates and sharing the information.
Adrita Haque, an engineer in training who volunteers with Calgary Climate Hub, has been in the thick of that. She's been helping Calgary Alliance for the Common Good organize 'coffee with a candidate' meetings, but mostly in the central wards where most volunteers live.
But Haque lives in the northwest, Ward 2. So after all that work, she still hasn't met her own candidates. She scanned the websites.
