After a raucous first round of voting, the second round of the Top Alberta Political Moment of the Decade contest is now open. With 997 votes counted, the following top 10 moments have made it to the second round.
Some readers have raised concerns that certain NDP organizers helped push Linda Duncan over the top in the first round of voting, but like real elections, the results are decided by those who show up. The point of the contest is to find a good balance between what was exciting at the time and what would make it into a Alberta Social Studies textbooks 30 years from now (when the next change in government is due to happen). You can vote daily for your choices until Saturday, December 19, 2009, when a winner will be announced and crowned shortly afterward.
I also recommend voting for Mastermaq for Best Technology & Science Blog, Calgary Grit for Best Political Blog, and Capital Notebook for Best Blog written by Journalist. Remember to please vote early, and vote often.
