Once again, we will be marching in the parade and have a booth afterwards. The festivities are on and around Whyte Ave this year, not downtown like previous years.

We are looking for volunteers to help with the parade and the booth. SIGN UP TO HELP WITH THE BOOTH.

The Alberta provincial election is on Tuesday, May 5 – get out and vote!

You may have noticed that our usual roundtable event would also be on May 5, we will be moving it to another day, so that all our SEA volunteers can get to the ballots, and our members don’t have to choose one or the other.

The SEA does not support a particular political party; we mostly want you to go and vote, and for you to make an informed choice based on what you value when you cast your ballot. To help with that, here are some resources.

  • Elections Alberta: How to make sure you’re on the List of Electors, where to find your polling station, and information about special ballots and advanced polls.
  • VoteKit: All the basics for new voters, including video tutorials in 8 languages and opportunities to practice voting before the big day.
  • Vote Compass: A questionnaire to help you determine which political party is closest to your priorities.
  • Albert Politics: Possibly the best Alberta political blog, with links to candidate webpages and other opinion pieces.

Just a reminder that the 2015 Annual General Meeting is tonight (April 7)!

When: 7:00 pm

Where: University of Alberta, Central Academic Building (CAB) room 239 (the campus map has interior maps).

Parking around the University can be pricey, and public transit is probably your best bet. Less expensive parking can usually be found at the Faculty Club parking lot (the surface lot north of Windsor Car Park, 116 St), although it’s a bit of a walk to CAB. We will be headed to Sherlock Holmes just off campus afterwards, and they do have a $5 flat rate, but again, you’ll have to walk to CAB.
