Electoral results by parties and independent MLAs (as a percentage of total Legislative Assembly seats) from 1912 to 2007. 1997 is shown due to the formation of the Saskatchewan Party.

This article provides a summary of results for the general elections to the Canadian province of Saskatchewan's unicameral legislative body, the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan. The number of seats has varied over time, from 25 for the first election in 1905, to a high of 66 for the 1991 election. There are currently 58 seats.

The chart on the upper right shows the information graphically, with the most recent elections on the right. It shows the popularity of the Liberal Party (red) before World War II, and the subsequent rise of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation – succeeded by the New Democratic Party (orange). The successes and failures by the Conservatives (blue) and the recent arrival of the Saskatchewan Party (green) can also be seen.
