Edmonton — Incoming Leader and Prime Minister Deadline to buy Alberta United Conservative Party members for $10 to vote for.

Parties are allowed to drop off by 5pm. Online membership until midnight.

The party will then go through the memberships to verify the information and the final tally will be done in about two weeks.

Seven candidates are on the ballot for the party's top job to replace Prime Minister Jason Kenny.

Mr Kenny announced in May that he was stepping down after a party leadership review gave him lukewarm support of 51 percent.

The next big date in the race is his second debate scheduled for August 30th in Edmonton.

Candidates have proposed a range of policy proposals, from health care to education reform, but the focus of the discussion has been to leverage Alberta's relationship with the federal government to address issues such as equality. Was on the way to get a better deal in the field.
