Edmonton municipal election, 1928


Edmonton municipal election, 1928

The 1928 municipal election was held December 10, 1928 to elect a mayor and six aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council and three trustees to sit on the public school board (A J Crowe, J O Pilon, and W D Trainor were acclaimed to the separate school board). There were also six bylaws put to a city-wide vote.

There were ten aldermen on city council, but four of the positions were already filled: Ralph Bellamy, A C Sloane, James East, and L S C Dineen were all elected to two year terms in 1927 and were still in office. John C. Bowen had also been elected to a two year term, but had resigned in order to run for mayor. Accordingly, Rice Sheppard was elected to a one year term.

There were seven trustees on the public school board, but four of the positions were already filled: Frank Crang, Arthur Cushing, Albert Ottewell, and Elmer Roper had all been elected to two year terms in 1927 and were still in office. The same was true on the separate board, where Robert Crossland, Charles Gariepy, Thomas Magee, and B J Tansey were continuing.

This election marked Edmonton's return to the first past the post electoral system after four elections of using single transferable vote.

There were 14971 ballots cast out of 37915 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 39.4%.
