UPDATED: Here’s how to find Abbotsford candidates on social media

Abbotsford News list of local council and mayoral candidates’ social media presence

A 21st Century race for political office still involves door-knocking, sign waving and hand-shaking, but social media has also become a key way for candidates can interact with citizens in the attempt to win their vote.

But not all candidates are easy to find on social media – or use the same sites. Until voting day on Oct. 20, we will collect candidates’ social media outlets on this page in order to provide voters a convenient place to find pertinent information.
