AUPE Votes

AUPE Votes is an initiative brought to you by your union Committee On Political Action. This page first focused on the federal election and how the major parties compare on issues that matter to AUPE members. Now that the federal election is over, we're focusing on Alberta's province-wide municipal elections. Remember to vote October 18th!

Candidates' responses to COPA's election survey

AUPE's Committee On Political Action sent election surveys to candidates across the province, including those running for Mayor, Council, Public and Catholic School Board. We sent these surveys to see how candidates felt about the issues that matter most to AUPE members and to grade their responses.

Not every candidate responded to the survey, but many did! Click on your municipality below to see how we graded your candidates' responses.
