The Ontrario PC party has made a choice about their leadership race.
The party's executive committee has chosen March 10th as decision day for a new leader.
The latest voters can cast their votes is March the 9th.
New party president Jag Badwal confirmed the date to media late Wednesday night following a PC executive meeting at the Four Seasons hotel in Yorkville .
Each candidate wishing to enter the race will be asked to pay a hefty entry fee of $125 thousand dollars, but $25 thousand of which will be merely a deposit and returned to the candidates once the race is over.
Badwal acknowledged that part of that fee will be used to help pay for an electronic voting system that will be used primarily to chose the new leader.
Each candidate will be allowed a maximum of $750,000 for their campaign.
Badwal added that all the rules and regulations for the election will be posted to the party's website Thursday morning.
