Does anyone know if it's possible to see results by the individual poll? Even if not tonight, eventually?
I strongly suspect the answer is no but I have never seen anything that verifies that information.

My impression is that it's more so than BC - that there are more right wing Christians in AB (and far more of any Christians than in BC - BC is the least "religious" province overall, in Canada): Especially Edmonton and the rural towns around it. But, we do have Langley, Delta and Abbottsford - Bible Belt towns in BC.
Edmonton is not within the Bible Belt.

Best place to start might be 338canada.com and drill down?

Vancouver Island is entirely NDP, except Elizabeth May’s riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands. All the rest, including Victoria, are NDP.

That may be so. Still, as in BC, there are areas of more conservative Christian groups in Alberta. I would also suggest that there are Christian groups that are loud, making it look as if they are in the majority when in fact they aren't. @ChemGal @BethAnne @You just never know may be able to speak to this better than I can.

Not that you'd know it, as it isn't very obvious, but rural Central AB is the Bible Belt of AB - but the mainline denominations are dying...but overall the Christian groups aren't very vocal

That's my impression. I guess I'm thinking of the issues related to GSA's in AB. It seemed that a small, possibly vocal group made it appear more Christian based than it is.

Some of the Catholic schools were vocal about those. The Catholics aren't really the group I connect with Bible Belt though. Older areas of Edmonton & surrounding areas to have French-Catholic areas. I see that separate from the migration of groups from the US and the German-type language speaking groups like Hutterites - those I connect as more Bible Belt connected.
