Edmonton municipal election, 1921
The 1921 municipal election was held December 12, 1921 to elect a mayor and seven aldermen to sit on Edmonton City Council and four trustees to sit on the public school board. F A French, Paul Jenvrin, Thomas Magee, and Joseph Henri Picard were acclaimed to two year terms on the separate school board.
There were ten aldermen on city council, but three of the positions were already filled: Joseph Adair, James Collisson, and Valentine Richards were all elected to two year terms in 1920 and were still in office. William Campbell McArthur had also been elected to a two year term, but had resigned in order to run for mayor. Andrew McLennan had also been elected to a two year term only to resign. In order to fill these vacancies, Izena Ross and Kenneth Alexander Blatchford were elected to one year terms.
There were seven trustees on the public school board, but three of the positions were already filled: W H Alexander, E T Bishop, and William Rea had all been elected to two year terms in 1920 and were still in office. The same was true on the separate board, where J Cormack, J J Murray, and Joseph Gariépy were continuing.
The 1921 election was the first in which a woman - Izena Ross - was elected to city council.
There were 10943 ballots cast out of 33256 eligible voters, for a voter turnout of 32.8%.
